About the artist...
Erin Cone emphasizes visual impact over narrative context, focusing on the subtle orchestration of the subject within a framework of design. She creates a deliberate push-and-pull between near-photorealistic detail and her own vocabulary of visual glitches that challenge that very realism. This duality is central to Cone's work and allows the figures she paints to remain wholly representational while functioning abstractly — evoking emotion without defining it.
