Kristen Erickson's passion is the study of nature and horticulture. Her paintings are visions of natural places she has been, and places she would like to visit. She feels euphoria in these places, and admires the dynamics of their space. She renders the harmony of the spaces with continuous lines that depict selective connections between elements. Erickson uses additive and subtractive processes to manipulate the physicality of the surface of her pieces. She uses iridescent paint to create a multidimensional experience that mimics the atmosphere of the natural spaces she is drawn to. She paints on rigid wooden panels, allowing her to sand and Dremel details that further emulate the dynamics of the space.
