THEORY OF LINE: ERIN WIERSMA @ A.I.R.Gallery in Brooklyn, NY


October 30 - November 29, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 6, 6-9pm

A.I.R. Gallery is pleased to announce, The Theory of Line, Erin Wiersma’s solo exhibition of drawings created throughout 2014. The exhibition will be on view from October 30th through November 29th, with an opening reception on November 6th from 6-9pm.

Wiersma’s non-representational drawings are createdthrough a meditative process that seeks confluencebetween the spiritual and material worlds. This meditation emerges, according to artist/writer Sharon Butler, as a natural response to our perception of time as moving at an impossibly rapid pace thanks to the rapidly accelerating rates of IT innovation. Through her drawing practice, Wiersma gets a handle on the reins, slowing time down, “Elegantly capturing time as line.” “In a roiling world that obscures and devours units of time”, Butler continues, “pausing to remember and articulateeven small moments matters all the more.” 

Artist/curator Marsha Levin-Rojer observes that “Wiersma’s creative process is an intense one and it pays o. The works speak well together. When viewed as a whole, there appears, throughout, an underlying web-like framework reminiscent of Virginia Woolf’s ‘moments of being’ -- a glimpse of a greaterwhole, a larger pattern that is sometimes hidden behind ‘the opaque surface of daily life.’”

Wiersma drawings have been exhibited in the United States as well as internationally. She received her Master of Fine Arts in Painting from University of Connecticut, and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Messiah College. She is currently working in Manhattan, Kansas as an Assistant Professor at Kansas State University. This is Wiersma’s first solo exhibition at A.I.R. Gallery.
