Artist Statement

Erin Bassett is an artist based in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Her inspiration comes from her fascination with the characteristics of silk and the beautiful seascapes of the local Florida reefs. She has been an exhibiting artist since 2002 after graduating from the University of Florida with a BFA in Creative Photography and continued through her studies at the Savannah College of Art + Design, where she received her MFA in Textile Design in 2012. 

Using the technique of Shibori, Erin manipulates yards of silk fabric into intricate forms of varying sizes and shapes. The heat produced while boiling and dying, sets these structures, allowing the silk to keep its form when the objects are removed. In order to expose the parts of the unseen fabric she finds interesting throughout the process, Erin documents the structures through photography. The manipulation of scale, color and pattern abstracts the digital representations. Using Shibori, fabric manipulations, photography, and digital printing, and finally projecting virtual images onto the sculpted textiles, these images seamlessly transition the three-dimensional fabric into two-dimensional images to become a completely virtual version of the original.

Erin talks about her art: “I love taking simple items, like yards of silk fabric, metal washers, glass beads and rubber bands to create sculptures that are unexpected, fascinating and unique. My artwork is a magical landscape of shapes that invites the eye to investigate what it’s seeing.”
