Erin Robertson is an artist + designer spun in Provo, Utah. Robertson was embroidered upon Boston, Massachusetts in 2005, and by 2011 she had stitched herself into the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she was bound to study Fashion and Fiber Art, and where her work was well-suited to the tastes of the CFDA Scholarship award committee. In 2016, Robertson made a seamless transition to the cast of Project Runway Season 15 - and didn't fold under pressure in her pursuit of victory. She made it work - the fun way.
Pinned nowadays to her newly-drafted studio headquarters, Robertson yokes together a tight-knit community of interdisciplinary/multimedia artist friends in Boston. Needled by looming environmental and political issues, she threads sustainable works in collaboration and dialogue with the world-class hub of innovation, MIT. At the apex of art and technology, lies the greatest point of cultural leverage + necessary invention. Like the mythological seamstress Arachne, an Erin's tapestry is simultaneously satirical + sublime - a serious joke.
Robertson's work - intricate, amusing, with perversely sophisticated appeal, seeks to surprise and delight. Surfaces shimmer with intentionally exaggerated sculptural embellishments that weave an almost self-satirical skein of coded logic, tailored to the female gaze. Power for womxn is her agenda, fashion and imagery is her medium. Technology is the sustainable way forward.
