Erin Cone : Time + Tide

28 August - 13 September 2020


"I'm interested in the intersection of nature and the human experience: the fundamental processes of growth and change, death and rebirth, ebb and flow, expansion and contraction - beyond our control yet inextricably linked with every aspect of our lives." 

- Erin Cone



Nüart Gallery presents, Time + Tide, a solo exhibition of new paintings by Erin Cone. The exhibition will run August 28th through September 13th, 2020. 


Erin Cone is known for her exceptionally compelling abstract figurative portraits. The women she paints articulate universal human emotions concentrated and revealed through gesture and pose. Powerfully expressive, Cone's sensitively rendered figures are removed from context or narrative, communicating from within abstract, minimal settings.


Erin Cone's newest exhibition, Time + Tide, explores the connection between humanity and nature. "Nature is inextricably linked to our every experience," Cone says, "patterns (seen and unseen) which govern our existence flow alongside our lives - timeless and unchanging, subtle yet profound. We live our lives within these cycles, whether we heed them or not. They link and unite us with each other and with all life." In weaving natural symbols and the human figure, the series becomes Cone's meditation on both the interrelationship of humanity to nature, and the interdependence of humans with each other.


Since her first solo show, Cone has consistently enjoyed critical and commercial success for her unconventional approach to figurative realism. With a steady exhibition schedule of solo and group shows across the U.S. and in Europe for the past two decades, Cone has twice been recognized in the national art press as a top emerging artist, has been interviewed on PBS, and has been featured in numerous art magazines - appearing on the cover of American Art Collector Magazine and Southwest Art Magazine, among others. Erin Cone's work is in hundreds of private, public and corporate collections throughout the U.S, Europe and Asia. Born in Lubbock, Texas, Cone received her BFA from the University of Texas in 1998. She now lives with her husband and daughter in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
