About Erin Shirreff

Working in multi-media, New York-based artist Erin Shirreff’s work encourages the viewer to see objects in new ways: unsettling spacial and sensory experience by creating sculptural works specifically for the camera that confuse perception; layering still photographs in video to present a new experience of the Moon or James Turrell’s great unfinished Roden Crater work (2009); exploring myriad interferences of glare and shadow at play on a computer screen; and presenting only one façade of a familiar Tony Smith work in an outdoor commission, Sculpture for Snow. Shirreff holds an MFA in sculpture from Yale University. Her work has been presented in numerous in solo and group exhibitions including Inside the White Cube at the White Cube, London; Lake at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco; The Locker Plant at the Chinati Foundation, Marfa; and Still, Flat, and Far at the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia.
