Her installation presents a glimpse of life in the hadal zone, the deepest trenches on earth (from 6,000 to 11,000 meters below the ocean’s surface). The viewer will encounter waves sewn from pages of marine science journal articles and numerous species of marine fauna. Suspended in the water column, these creatures are sculpted of wool, at actual size, and in their accurate colors." More information at the UH Dept of Art and Art History website.

ART EXHIBIT: ERIN MARQUEZ, Honoring Totems: Giving Presence of Form | WAIKIKI PARC Gallery
Referring to her recent works in Honoring Totems: Giving Presence of Form Erin states, “These sculptures are depictions of the mares’ emergence from the obscurity of my dreams. In the process of sculpting them they become whole, separating themselves from my memory. Their emergence from the ground they are set in thereby gives them presence outside my dreams. They each arrive as messengers, bringing knowledge, and guidance. Every visit, no matter how brief, is important to me.” Erin expects to receive her BFA degree from the Department of Art + Art History, UHM, in 2015. For more information, please visit the UH Department of Art and Art History website.
January 14 - April 1, 2016
