Artist Bio:
Erin's studio practice utilizes abstraction and the use of line through drawing, painting, and sculptural assemblages. By connecting visuals in our landscape to human experience, she looks at overlaps in our understanding of time, patterns, divergence, and associative reflection.

During Open Studios she will have recently returned from the Windy Mowing Artist Residency in Vermont, where Erin has been preparing for a solo exhibition at Boxheart Gallery, Pittsburgh Pa for September 2020. Concurrently with Open Studios, she has work exhibiting at Blue Table Post, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
