Welcome our current resident artist Erin Currier! Erin is a Santa Fe based artist whose recent mixed media work has been focused on contemporizing and subverting artistic masterpieces by artists such as Manet and Tiepolo. These works were inspired by residencies, research and studio time in Italy and Peru. These works stay true to the composition, palette, and overall aesthetic of these masters, while also remaining loyal to her own vision and voice. At this residency Erin will develop a suite of mixed media collage studies on paper, and to create a large-scale collage painting on panel quoting and updating a masterpiece, inspired by the human realm—its concerns and its culture—encountered in Joshua Tree.
