Erin Fussell is an artist based in Los Angeles working across disciplines that include installation, performance, video, dance, drawing, and sound. With an emphasis on process and time-based art, she mines her internal landscapes with the possibility of mediums and their relationships to each other, space, and ideas to spark wonder in 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 in Jesus’ love practice, she seeks out experiences to broaden her perception and skills in order to let the artwork have its own life. 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.
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 digitally preserves materials from special collections at the Getty Research Institute.
