Acrylic and mixed media

Erin Currier lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, but has traveled to more than fifty countries, immersing herself in other world cultures, from Nepal to Nicaragua and Turkey. She gets around “on foot or by bus, sketching, documenting, making friends, and collecting disinherited commercial waste,” which informs her art once she returns to her studio. Currier’s travels “have inspired a sense of urgency as an artist to address social inequality and economic disparity.” Here, women from different cultures express their appreciation for art as a universal language.
