Erin Garcia

Artist Statement

Erin D. Garcia is a visual artist based in Los Angeles. Originally from the Deep South, he and his work have both taken a long migratory path with many twists and turns along the way. Garcia’s current work is an exploration of where the human capacity for abstraction intersects or conflicts with the sensory desire for specificity. Each one of his drawings or paintings is part of a process of distillation, and there is a distinct feeling when taken together as a series that they are driving ever closer to a revelatory moment. The process of the work is exceedingly present, the pieces are inextricable from the practice of their generation.
