Erin Wright is a painter and designer based in Los Angeles, California. With a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and a Master of Architecture from UCLA, Erin’s architecture practice, Plus Projects, focuses on bridging the two disciplines through art-based reasoning. The office is currently working on several residential and small commercial projects.
Erin’s painting practice is an exercise in technique: the works mimic the machine-made quality of an architectural rendering through isometric posturing and applied textures. The work invites intimate viewing and challenges the notion of scale through the absence of figures. The work has been shown nationally and internationally and published in New American Paintings, The New York Times and Studio Visit Magazine.
