Erin Conron is a glass artist living and working in Canberra. Following a busy year of making in 2018, Erin took the opportunity in 2019 to take a creative “leave of absence” and embarked on a road trip with her family travelling through the Northern Territory, all the while gaining inspiration for new creations in her favoured medium of glass.
Currently working as a visual arts teacher, Erin is also making new work for a solo exhibition planned for Canberra’s Beaver Galleries in February 2021. “Shifting focus”, the work illustrated in this update beautifully exemplifies the artist’s skilful use of the aesthetic elision of simple forms and subtle decorative elements.
