Reader, Erin Mitchell recently reached out to me and I immediately fell for the over all feel and look of her work. I asked her to tell me about her work:
"I've been looking at ideas of dualism/duality, specifically where the body and the individual psyche or conscious overlap or contradict each other and how these wrestling entities combine to create the self and define one's identity. I'm interested in exploring a visual world where the psyche and the physical body struggle for control of how the self appears, acts, and feels. Contrasting themes of chaos and the desire to control, memory acting in the present, and the subconscious versus the actual continue to float to the surface of my work."
