Erin Waters & the 11:11 collection:
ABOUT THE ARTWORK
So many times I struggle to find the right words… painting means that I don’t have to.
There is a tremendous freedom in pouring emotion out onto a canvas, layering on thoughts and texturing in personal expression.
The artwork that I create is abstract but not by design. I do not feel led to produce pieces that fit within the confines of any defined style of art.
Inspiration to paint usually starts with an idea or image, formed over a period of time, which I mentally revise until I feel pulled to work the idea out onto a canvas.
I find a rhythm and movement to my paintings (within the process and once completed) that are likely an extension of my personality and how I am uniquely made…overtly simple though heavily textured with bold, colorful strokes of influence…far & near, past & present.
To transform a canvas in a way that pleases me is self- serving.
To transform a canvas in a way that pleases others is rewarding.
I’m always hopeful that the latter is true.
