To summarize a man’s life of 97 years is an impossible task.  Having a glimpse into his thoughts though his creative process reveals profound care for the world and community that surround him.

A connecting flow of rhythm and movement can be seen throughout Ted’s work as he embraced major historical political, social and artistic changes.  Personal involvement in World War II and the Civil Rights Movement shaped his ideology.  His response was direct and emotive as evidenced in his paintings aboard ship and later, powerful sculpture.  He was influenced by but not limited to the artistic movements of social realism, abstract expressionism and minimalism.

As a pioneer and benevolent leader he chose Taos as his home.  Surviving economic hardships, he responded with the gift of teaching and sharing his talents with children and adults in the community.  Establishing the “Taos Moderns” group continued to secure the importance of the growth of the art colony, generating national attention.

Evaluating his life long works of art, the viewer can see the skillful progression of thoughts and experiences of Ted Egri.  The vast confident range of technique causes one to liken his career to a modern Picasso.
