ERIN GLEASON

My artworks critically and playfully challenge our relationship to measured space and time versus our experience of it, and how this tension plays out physically, psychologically, politically, and culturally. Born in Buffalo, aged in Philadelphia, and seasoned in Australia, Scotland, and New York City, the question of what makes a space a place has gnawed at me since childhood. Drawing from my current research in philosophy and aesthetics and nearly twenty years of professional experience in the fields of architecture, branding, and graphic design, I work with place across multiple mediums and disciplines from drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and installation to public art commissions, interactive events, curating, and writing. The artworks often have a cheeky sensibility and are laced with a subtle humor.
