Artists, Kalina Winska and Erin Curry, recently embarked on an investigative collaboration in preparation for a dual show in October of 2011. This blog is the record.
Erin Curry is an American artist who currently lives and works in Gainesville, FL. Her most recent research and art revolves around handspinning raw chaotic fiber into orderly line and shaping ordered line into tangled or woven mass. Immersed in this investigation she contemplates the elemental practice of handspinning, the relationship of craft to art, the signature of human and machine facture, and the ever increasingly tangled connections between things. She received her BFA in Sculpture and Art History at the University of Florida. For more information please visit the artist’s website at www.erincurry.com.
Kalina Winska, artist from Poland, currently an MFA student in Drawing/Painting Program at University of Florida, creates large-scale drawings and installations. In her art she draws upon loss and the threshold of displacement. Interpreting this liminal state through the transformation of materials, objects, and familiar images that often come from personal memory and Polish Folklore, lies at the core of her studio practice.
