So grateful to show my work at Axle Brewing Company's Livernois Tap! Somehow over the past few months I was able to make enough work to grace an entire wall at Axle and Couldn't be more excited about the outcome!
My paintings will be up May 1st- May 31st
About the artist & work:
My name is Erin Brott, I am an artist currently living in Ferndale and an elementary art educator in Detroit. In my work and in life I am constantly searching for beauty in the mundane. Often overwhelmed by the daily grind I find inspiration in conversations, colors and unexpected moments. Painting forces me to slow down and really work to process and express the sensory overload I face each day. I am constantly inspired by my students and love watching how their compassion and curiosity drives them. In my artwork I try to interpret these feelings using the colors, textures, and imagery that stand out in my mind.
In this body of work you will find…
cloud patterns from a drive home from work,
detailed observations of plants found peeking through the dark,
colors from messy paint pallets my students have left behind,
and hopeful growth in otherwise overlooked pieces of land.
