Eckart is trying to capture a mix of transcendentalism and spiritualism. Some artists that influenced Eckart include Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and Russian Artist Kaspar Malevich, both covered here already. The group of painters he followed were given the title Nouveau Realistes.

Works with many different textures in his work including aluminum with hand polished automotive lacquer. Its quite similar to the method the Rolls Royce auto company paints its vehicles.
