Statement

Born in Stow, Ohio in 1978, Erin Rachel Hudak creates collages, drawings, paintings and sculptures that are "as much poetic as they are political and playful as they are perceptive." writes Pauli Ochi of Ochi Gallery in Sun Valley, Idaho. 

Working with an assortment of materials, Hudak’s work discusses, among other things, ideas of freedom, power, tranformation, and ultimately asks, where are we going and were have we been. Hudak layers acrylic paint, photographs, graphite and colored pencils to create visual narratives that are fueled by the recycled material of our cultural media. Her bright, dripping paint becomes the foundation on which she builds an assemblage of mark making and phrases. In each drawing, painting or sculpture she weaves a new dimensionality into what may seem familiar, creating allegories that speak to both the individual and collective story.

Hudak has been awarded with grants for her public temporary sculptures: Love You Forever, installed under the Manhattan bridge on the Brooklyn Bridge beach in 2011, and Everything Is Fine, installed in the historic Tobacco Warehouse, 2010. Both were proposed and created especially for the DUMBO Arts Festival.

She attended Allegheny College to study art and literature and received her B.F.A from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Hudak has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. Her artwork has recently been shown at Women Made Gallery in Chicago, ArtHamptons, and featured in Vogue Girl Korea, Art+Culture.com, and written up in the VillageVoice, and The Brooklyn Eagle.
