Erica Hansen's picture

Art objects are temporal marks on the landscape, indicative of our impact, but also our minuteness in the history of the earth. Visual language has the ability not only to describe, but also to communicate, reviving our relationship with the earth and civilization. I see myself as a sieve, a spectator, and a scientist. My work is a conversation between myself, my audience, and the world as a useable substance.
My work investigates the implications of language and text, human forms and artifacts, natural cycles and social currents. I see my subject matter and materials as pieces of shared human experience.
