Through sculpture, painting, film and performance arts, Eris Gentle expresses the intensity and absurdity of human existence using everyday objects and forms to express everything from spiritual awakening to madness.
Eris is a multimedia artist who hails from New Orleans, but is now based in Austin. As she appreciates the intensity and dynamic nature of life and uses painting, drawing, clay sculpture, film, and performance to tell her stories and to challenge our views on the nature of why we are here.
Her work acknowledges the surreal elements and underlying enchantments in everyday objects, landscapes, and human forms. She's fascinated by subjects that normally don't come up in conversation like the phenomenon of dreaming, psychedelic experiences, spiritual awakening, and how we understand this reality. Her creations appear to be an intentional invitation to generate discussions about such intriguing ideas.
You can check work out at Gallery Lucid until August 27, 2018 and find more examples of her work on her Instagram page or her website.
