Erika Lynne Hanson's practice holds the act of weaving at its core, yet takes the shape of installations that emphasize the relationships of objects. The situations that are posed ask the viewer to question perceived expectations of stability. The ephemerality of an object is highlighted be it a plank of cedar, a potted succulent, or a bit of woven yarn.
Hanson received her MFA from California College of the Arts, and holds a BFA in Fiber from The Kansas City Art Institute. Her work has recently been exhibited in Los Angeles, Kansas City, San Francisco, Chicago and Minneapolis. Currently Hanson has a studio residency through Kansas City's Urban Culture Project and is a Lecturer at the Kansas City Art Institute For more information please visit www.elhanson.com.
