Erin K. Schmidt – Now Then
The work of Erin K. Schmidt is influenced by notions of identity created by personal histories, memories and perception. Much of her work dwells on singular moments, suggestive of deeply personal events shared with an unknown second character, a role which is left open leaving unanswered questions for the viewer. She also explores identity through notions of home and some of the misconceptions surrounding the outsider view of the city of Detroit where she lives.
Erin K. Schmidt has her BFA from Michigan State University and her MA in Book Arts from University of the Arts London. Her work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in private and public collections including Tate Britain, University of the West of England, Camberwell College of the Arts, and Saison Poetry Library, London and the University of California San Diego, USA. She currently lives in Detroit, Michigan, USA.
