Erin McKenna
B. 1989, Columbus Ohio
Lives and works in Los Angeles, CA

McKenna’s works in many different mediums including fabric, found objects, hydrocal, fiberglass, and resin to make work that references issues of feminism, the figure, humor, and ambiguity. The constant flirtation between refinement and grittiness mashed with the redefining of an object’s characteristics makes for a playful and unsettling dialogue. An object is taken from culture and is disfigured or decontextualized completely in order to further understand and deconstruct.

Erin McKenna graduated with a BFA from Columbus College of Art and Design in 2012. She was a co-founder of No Place Studios in Columbus, OH from 2012 - 2015. For the past two years she has been living and working in Los Angeles. This new body of work deals with with the gender and sociopolitical stereotypes associated with Toyota pickup trucks.

This work will be on view until Jun 14, 2017.

The Harold J Miossi Art Gallery is open M-F 11am-12pm and the first & third Saturdays of the month from 12pm-4pm. Email gallery@cuesta.edu with any questions!
