Erin Holscher Almazan

My work is a direct and emotional response to identity, as influenced by factors both external and domestic.  I am continually fascinated and perplexed by my roles, reproduction and familial relationships.  Through drawing, printmaking and painting, I reflect on a malleable identity shaped not only by our own shifting environments, but also by nature, nurture, inheritance, and history.  I draw, print and paint on mylar, paper or copper to fluidly move with and investigate form and edge and to achieve a range of delicate, gestural line.  I strive to communicate acceptance, ambivalence, struggle, empathy, and connectivity.
