Erin Gleason
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Crown Heights



ARTIST STATEMENT: 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.

Drawing from my current research in philosophy and over fifteen years of professional experience in the fields of architecture, branding, and graphic design, I work with space across multiple mediums and disciplines from drawing, printmaking, photography, and installation to public art, interactive events, curating, and writing.

Writer and activist Parker Palmer describes a third thing as something that “allows us to hold challenging issues metaphorically, where they can’t devolve to the pro-or-con choices forced on us by conventional debate.” For me, this is what art is all about—creating a multi-layered space that inspires people to talk to one another and question their own preconceptions.

It is especially important for me to create work that is engaging on multiple levels simultaneously—art that is both beautiful and challenging, connects to both the emotional and intellectual parts of our being, and is just as intriguing for a young child as it is to the most die-hard theorist.

Extensive fieldwork and research are a significant part of my process, and often the medium doesn’t reveal itself until the concept begins to solidify. My approach in making an artwork is reductive (refining the piece until there are a minimum amount of gestures used to communicate its essential idea), participatory (engagement with site, body, and/or the public), and transdisciplinary (working across fields collaboratively or alone). The artworks often have a cheeky sensibility and are laced with a subtle humor.
