Erin Jane Nelson

  • Erin Jane Nelson’s practice is grounded in photography sourced from her personal archive of found and original images. She works serially, with each project delving into new conceptual frameworks as far ranging as the cultural anxiety around climate change, the sentience of octopuses, and the science fiction of our present moment. Her photographic elements merge onto unexpected support structures, their multiple references engaging the nuanced anxiety, conflict, and humor of the present and immediate future. Along with ceramics, found textiles and collaged photographs typical of earlier bodies of work, Nelson incorporates natural dyeing techniques that fix her works with the colors and ghosts of plants and insects. She represents a cohort of young artists based outside of New York who are increasingly speaking at the intersection of art, craft, climate, and belief.
