Erin Cross received her MFA in Visual Studies with a focus in multi-media studies. Her work has been published and exhibited nationally and internationally and resides in numerous private and public collections.
My art is an exploration of various mark making methods through traditional, contemporary and experimental visualizations. I am interested in how far I can push the concept of drawing/painting and what actually constitutes, “a mark.” I translate my visual experiences as a narrative agent producing a lyrical movement and allowing dialogue between line, shape, movement and sound to interact within my various compositions, distorted and highlighted.
She is currently an assistant professor of art at Doane University. She resides in Lincoln, Nebraska.
