Hi everyone. I hope you are doing well. Winter is upon us. Classes are almost for me and I am looking forward to the holiday season. For this week, I had a wonderful chat with Eri King, an interdisciplinary artist working in various modes such as installation, sculpture, textiles, painting, drawing, video, sound, and performance. Born in Japan and growing up in Las Vegas, Eri fell into her art career while attending the University of Las Vegas, where she received a concentration in Studio Art and Art History, before completing her MFA at Hunter College in 2018. Eri and I had a ton of overlap within our art circles and it was great to learn more about her and her work. We discuss finding and creating art communities in affordable spaces, holding zen in Hot Cheetos, having Beyonce as Hunter College’s neighbor, and secret paintings. As always, stay safe and healthy and I hope you enjoy this.
