Erin Oliver’s multi-disciplinary practice investigates ideas about abstraction and artifice, cyclical processes, and visuospatial awareness by constructing layered sculptural installations with ephemeral materials.  The installation environments evoke natural and imagined worlds that explore the boundaries between science, metaphysics, movement, and healing.  Oliver has received several grants and residency fellowships including the Vermont Studio Center, the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation, the Ella Foundation Pratt Emerging Artist Grant, and the Gasparilla Emerging Artist Award, juried by Paul Galloway from MOMA.  Her paintings and installation work has been exhibited along the East coast including Tempus Projects in Tampa, FL, the Carrack Modern Art in Durham, NC, UNC Asheville, NC, the Greenhill Center for North Carolina Art in Greensboro, NC, and the USF Contemporary Art Museum in Tampa, FL.  She received her MFA from the University of South Florida in Tampa, FL.
