Erin Parish draws on patterns found in nature for the subject matter of her tactile, bold, and brilliant abstract paintings created with oil and resin on wood, canvas, and mirrored panel. Inspired by the utopian quality of German Expressionism, as well as a diverse set of personal interests — the tranquility of the ocean, the meditative tenets of Buddhism, and the aesthetics of Japanese Wabi Sabi — her trademark paintings are marked by the repetition of circular forms, diamonds, and other abstract geometric shapes that are repeated in nature, as she considers the ways in which they mirror each other at the most microscopic and macroscopic levels.
