ERIN GLEASON

My artworks critically and playfully examine the art of knowledge, particularly our relationship to "the tug" between measurement and lived experience, the rational and the sensuous. Drawing from my current research in philosophy and aesthetics and nearly twenty years of professional experience in the fields of architecture and graphic design, I create artworks in multiple mediums from drawing, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and installation to public art commissions, interactive events, curating, and writing. Born in Buffalo, aged in Philadelphia, and seasoned in Australia, Scotland, and New York City, a curiosity and love of place has been a constant inspiration since childhood. What began as an artistic inquiry into "the tug" of place has grown into a broader examination of this tug in language, time, the feminine, and notions of truth. The artworks are often laced with a subtle humor and draw attention to the sense of wonderment in everyday life.
