Erin Cone’s focus is the subtle orchestration of a subject within the framework of design. Inspired by the beauty of the human figure and nuances of expression, Cone explores the balance of trying to find where realism and pure design meet and merge.
By creating a deliberate push-and-pull between near-photorealistic detail and visual glitches, these painting challenge the viewer’s perception of realism. This duality allows the figures to remain wholly representational while functioning abstractly.cv statement
