ARTIST STATEMENT

Erin BassettI love taking simple items, like yards of silk fabric, metal washers, glass beads and rubber bands to create sculptures that are unexpected, fascinating and unique. Using Shibori, fabric manipulations, photography, and digital printing, I create three-dimensional sculptures in fabric juxtaposed next to two-dimensional images. My artwork is a magical landscape of shapes that invites the eye to investigate what it’s seeing.

A graduate of the University of Florida, BFA in Creative Photography, and the Savannah College of Art + Design, MFA in Textile Design, her inspiration comes from her fascination with the characteristics of silk and the beautiful seascapes of the local Florida reefs.
