2019 exhibit 3 artist
Erin Cooper is a contemporary abstract figurative artist based in OKC. Erin grew up on the Oregon Coast cultivating a passion for creating visual art. She pursued a career in graphic design, and formed a creative studio, CooperHouse, with her husband. Erin began incorporating elements of fine art into her designs, then rediscovered her love of painting.
Erin’s work is bright, energetic, and incorporates graphic elements and the human form. The mediums vary widely and include watercolor, acrylic, oil, pencil, charcoal, ink and wax pastels. Her style is marked by fearless use of color.
My work is about creating relationships between divergent elements. These elements first communicate chaos that is then formed into something meaningful.
My medium is primarily paint on canvas, but the exploration of various media is part of my process. I want to allow experimentation and emotion to co-mingle in chaos, but ultimately leverage the struggle and the unexpected challenges to create something that is relevant.
