Erin Parish

American, 1966
Erin Parish, an accomplished American painter and independent curator, was born in St. Louis, MO, in 1966. Graduating from Bennington College with a B.A. in 1988 and later earning her M.F.A. from Queens College in 1990, Parish emerged as a practicing artist at the age of 18, exhibiting regularly for nearly four decades. Raised in a family of four artists, she was immersed in discussions about the evolving art world, drawing inspiration from a range of influences, including Joseph Cornell, German Expressionists, and Neue Wilde artists in her early years. Currently represented by Winston Wachter Fine Art since 2000, Parish's artistic journey has shifted to find inspiration in the Hudson River School artists, Mariko Mori, Yayoi Kusama, and Japanese woodcuts by Hokusai and Hiroshige. Incorporating Japanese principles like Wabi-sabi and Yugen, Parish's career is marked by dedication, recognized through prestigious grants and residencies, including the 2001 Peter S. Reed Foundation Grant in New York City, NY, and a 1997 Fellowship Grant from the Hand Hollow Foundation during her residency at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA, among others.
