Erin Ross Biography


Erin Ross was born in 1983 in Edmonton, Alberta. She earned a Fine Arts degree from the University of Alberta in 2006. Erin has also studied Visual Communication Design at Medicine Hat College.

An accomplished professional in the mediums of painting, printmaking and drawing, Erin creates works that aim to challenge her viewers’ perceptions of beauty, gender and mortality. She uses unexpected subject matter, distorts scale and abstracts colour to simultaneously create a push and pull with the audience.

Erin’s work is informed by contemporary painters like George Shaw, David Hockney, and Mark Rothko while still speaking to the rich history of landscape painters in Canada. Each piece is distinctively emotional and a contemporary re-imagining of classic subject matter.

Erin states that the landscape pieces are “a reflection of where I come from and how I relate to my surroundings. I take the romantic idea of the prairies—the ‘golden west’—then blow it apart and explore it. My experiences with the land motivated me to create this work.

The pieces acknowledge traditional styles and genres of painting, but in an unexpected way. They are melancholic and beautiful in their exploration of landscape and the ‘dark pastoral.’”
