"Your paintings remind me of the peace and quiet I feel
when I am sitting looking out over the ocean,
feeling the wind and hearing the waves crashing."
Born to an artistic family, I had always been surrounded by art and creativity. Went to college for art, worked in creative and artistic jobs in and out of college, even created two art businesses. Art was, and still is my safe space. At the age of 45, I went through a major life event that was so traumatic, it shook me to my core. I again needed art to help me heal, although this time my studio work was much different.
For the first part of my life, my art was created from either a place of logic or a place of emotions. I either worked in a very regimented architecturally precise way planning everything and using rulers, compasses and mechanical pencils. Or, I would find myself emotionally slinging paint with my hands or sticks or scribbling with charcoal in a free spirited abstract way without any plan as to it's outcome.
Today, in my early 50's I realize in order to achieve inner peace, I needed to embrace both sides of my personality, and both sides of my brain simultaneously. To live inside the eye of the storm even amidst the chaos, and to create my art using both methods, being restrictive and precise as well as being free flowing and whimsical. Welcome to my small part of the world I call "Equilibrium : A journey to find inner peace".
"Erin's [abstract] work is soulful, high energy with music in the movement. Her fine lines and strong brush strokes are very lyrical and seem poetic in their intertwined imagery. The layers reveal one image and message after another. There is a strong juxtaposition between the rough and smooth textures and the contrast of values. "
"These [paintings] are highly evolved very graceful abstract forms, loose yet deliberate. The process is very well executed."
"When I look at your work, I think that it is like the dichotomies we see everywhere - light and dark; hard and soft; stability and insecurity; warm and cold. I would describe your [abstract] work as courageous. In not including color or clear representation of a particular object - it forces us to use our own imagination and open our minds to see/feel what it means to us, rather than being told what it is supposed to be."
