Project Description

Erin Dengerink

Combining and altering personal items is how I make much of my work. All the components in my art have been touched, loved, and worn – any clinical cleanliness, or intimidating newness has been rubbed off. Damaged and cast-off items appeal to me. I relate to them. I feel we have all been broken and repaired so many times that we are made up mostly of the things that have healed us. Scars, embroidery thread, and pencil lead hold us together. We have been sewn up and sutured with care. Each stitch is a mark on a roadmap that led us here.
