Dark Thaw
Jen Erickson

October 3 - November 2, 2013

Opening Reception: 5 - 8pm
First Thursday, October 3, 2013

Jen Erickson’s meticulously detailed graphite drawings feature forms made by an accumulation of handmade marks. Each mark is either drawn or carved into the surface in a response to the previous one. These marks come together and disperse, engaging in the constant continuum of growth and decay. She finds inspiration from the idea of loss and the act of decomposition as well as the visualization of data and biological systems.

Since graduating with her MFA from Central Washington University, Jen Erickson has been involved in artist run galleries such as PUNCH and the Saranac Art Projects in Spokane. She also acts as a consultant for the Brink Gallery in Missoula, MT. She currently lives and works in Hayden, Idaho and teaches at North Idaho College.
