Erika Mahr's investigation of form, technique and abstraction has been a continuous component to her practice as an artist for nearly a decade now. Within her work is an underlying sense of discipline and confidence that she utilizes to create remarkably unique works within beautifully established perimeters and principals. The evolution of Mahr's practice has flowed from early sculptures, to painting, works on paper and now a combination of many of these forms in mixed media.
Mahr was born on Long Island, New York. She received her MFA from Hunter College and currently lives and works in the Hudson Valley of New York. Mahr has had solo exhibitions at LAUNCH F18, Hap Gallery, and The Susan B. Hilles Gallery. Her work has been included in recent group exhibitions at The New Hampshire Institute, the Seattle Art Fair, Theirry Goldberg Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery and Art Current, among others. Mahr received a fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2009, was a recipient of the Joshua Tree Highlands Residency in 2016, and was nominated for the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Rema Hort Mann Foundation Visual Art Grant.
