Erin Berry’s work uses ceramics to explore human pathology through examination and experimentation, both of which produce unpredictable or unplanned outcomes. She is particularly interested in the undesirable or altogether unwanted as a locus of intrigue and imagination.
Erin is currently using digital, manual and material processes in ceramics to examine and expand on the content of sterile medical imagery used by physicians to treat patients. Her treatment of these images, as they are translated through various materials, is a way to explore parts of the body that we usually only consider as part of a medical diagnosis.
Erin has a Diploma in visual arts from Camosun College and a BFA from Concordia University with a Major in Ceramics.
She was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence (Ceramics) at Harbourfront Centre in 2019.
