Artist in Residence – Ingrid Erickson

“My work spans the intersection of art and science through the investigation of specific species and ecosystems. Each piece is individually hand cut using an x-acto knife and scissors, with up to several thousand individual cuts per piece, and color is added after cutting is complete, with layers of light-fast acrylic spray paint.
