Erin Cooper

Artist Statement

My work is about creating relationships between divergent elements. These elements first communicate chaos that is then formed into something meaningful.

My medium is primarily paint on canvas, but the exploration of various media is part of my process. Connecting paint, pencil, ink, markers, wax pastels, charcoal (for starters) and seeing the sometimes unexpected results creates the challenge that has become a big part of my work.

I want to allow experimentation and emotion to co-mingle in chaos, but ultimately leverage the struggle and the unexpected challenges to create something that is relevant.
