Erin Fussell is an interdisciplinary artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her work sparks wonder about the experience of everyday living. From hitchhiking and working on organic farms in New Zealand to an artist residency in Ghana to performing seasonal labor at an Alaskan fishing lodge to her graduate degrees and faith practice, she seeks out experiences to broaden her perception and skills in order to let the artwork speak for itself. She combines what she encounters day to day with conceptual ideas and intuition while working with the materials for each project to communicate with the viewer. With an emphasis on process and time-based art, she works across disciplines that include installation, performance, video, sound, drawing, and dance.
Erin’s work has been shared internationally in diverse ways such as heard on Soundart Radio in the U.K., screened at Stone + Water in Seoul, Korea, on Open Access television in Portland, Oregon and as part of The One Minutes Series in the Netherlands. She has performed in the woods and installed work in an old gas station turned exhibition space as well as exhibited work in galleries that include CoCA Seattle, Monte Vista Projects, Sanitary Tortilla Factory, and SITE Santa Fe. Publicity features of her work include PBS, Terrain Journal, and Southwest Contemporary Magazine. She is extremely curious, always learning new things.
Currently, she preserves materials from the Los Angeles Woman’s Building at the Getty Research Institute.
