Current Artist: Erin cooper
Erin Cooper is a contemporary abstract figurative artist based in Oklahoma City. Erin grew up on the Oregon Coast cultivating a passion for creating visual art. She pursued a career in graphic design, and eventually formed creative the studio, CooperHouse, with her husband. Erin began incorporating elements of fine art into her designs, and rediscovered her love of painting.
Erin’s work is bright, energetic, and incorporates graphic elements and the human form. The mediums vary widely and include watercolor, acrylic, oil, pencil, charcoal, ink and wax pastels. Her style is marked by fearless use of color and detailed, yet playful compositions.
“ My work is about creating relationships between divergent elements. These elements first communicate chaos that is then formed into something meaningful.
My medium is primarily paint on canvas, but the exploration of various media is part of my process. Connecting paint, pencil, ink, markers, wax pastels, charcoal (for starters) and seeing the sometimes unexpected results creates the challenge that has become a big part of my work.I want to allow experimentation and emotion to co-mingle in chaos, but ultimately leverage the struggle and the unexpected challenges to create something that is relevant.”
