Mandy wrote the following about my work, which was easier than writing it myself though I did make a few edits, mostly the words 'meditative', 'quiet' and 'hum' so don't hold her to those, nor me for that matter.
Erica Hauser’s new body of work explores chromatic and organic balance in a playful but delicate tension between object and canvas. While the color palettes evoke the same vintage simplicity of her earlier Americana works, this new abstract collection references more meditative forms found in nature, drawing upon her decades-long experience as a wood-stacker. The works retain the quiet feel of pristinely-stacked objects in space, yet hum with the energy of her striking use of color.
