Erin Conrad – Artist Biography

I am interested in the way we are affected individually by common experiences. It is the similarities in life that ultimately result in creating our differences. Simple, daily experiences in life leave marks, traces and memories that accumulate within us to form and shape our complex identities. The development of my work has been a consideration of the collective and the personal, the interior and the exterior, seeking balance in the combination of elements.

These ideas are reflected in my working process. Each piece is created over time through a series of steps, which unite to result in depth and complexity through the layering of simple linear pattern. The vehicle for expression in this work is the blown glass vessel, which acts as a canvas for the layering of linear pattern. The layered pattern evokes a lifetime of experiences and memories that have built up to shape the identity of an individual.
