ERIN VINCENT

Erin Vincent (b. 1977, Canada) is a Toronto based-artist whose work draws on a variety of repetitive and labour intensive processes and materials.  Things have always fascinated Vincent; attracted to the abject and the discarded, she de-categorizes them and removes established hierarchies.  She explores themes of emotional intensity, intuition and the relationship between things.  The sculptures she makes possess their own liveliness and ability to engage and be engaged.

Erin has recently completed her MFA at York University, focusing on sculpture and installation.  She holds her BFA from the University of Waterloo and received her degree in Arts Education from the University of Western Ontario.  Vincent has exhibited her work in Canada, United States and England, with shows at Art Mur (Montreal, QB), Renann Isaacs Contemporary (Guelph ON) and Christie Contemporary (Toronto ON). Her work is held in Canadian and international collections and she is the recipient of a 2017 Emerging Artist Grant from the Ontario Arts Council and a 2016 SSHRC Grant.
