A MOMENT, PLEASE
January 10 – February 13, 2020
The large-scale sculptural work in the show A Moment, Please focuses on the seemingly unending process of repairing and rebuilding one’s self. Erica ‘mends’ or knots simple fibers and thread together in a meditative and obsessive manner. The work gradually becomes a visual accumulation — a visual record — of the time it takes to heal. Each moment, each struggle amasses and blends and eventually becomes impossible to distinguish. Looking back, the viewer sees that this fundamental human undertaking is simultaneously strong and fragile, messy and disciplined, heavy and light. This work tries to find comfort in such fraught moments.
Erica Green is a mixed media artist who lives and works in Boulder, Colorado. Green received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska and completed a two-year post-baccalaureate program at the University of Colorado. Her large-scale sculptural work has been shown nationally including solo and group exhibitions in notable galleries such as RULE Gallery, Redline Contemporary, The Diary Center for the Arts and The Arvada Center for the Arts and Site: Brooklyn in New York. In 2019, she was awarded the Director’s Award in “The Art of the State” show at Arvada Center for the Arts in Arvada, CO and received Honorable Mention in the “Contemporary Art Survey” at the Lincoln Center Gallery in Fort Collins, CO. Her work has been featured in Create Magazine, Average Arts, Westword and The Denver Post to name a few. She has participated in several artist residency programs around the country including receiving a fellowship at Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. In 2020, Green will be a resident artist at the Boulder Creative Collective in Boulder, CO and at Breck CREATE in Breckinridge, CO.
