Erin L Kuhn's work centers around narrating and formulating the internal and external environment by navigating habitats land, sea, and sky.
Her work is constructed from hard and soft, obscure and translucent materials that exhibits both the physical and mental states of fragility and sustainability. Through a process of adding and subtracting recorded documentation questions current issues and offers windows of opportunities for collaboration between viewer and artist. Although, illustrated subjects provoke an invasion of personal emotions making it difficult as the past reflects.
Kuhn embodies scaring the abused printing plates, the healing process of stitching and patching, the forming and molding of earthen clay, all in hopes of build bridges between divided worlds.
