Rowan Eriksson

Rowan Eriksson is a contemporary painter with an intersectional practice informed by their gender identity and auditory disorder. Their art explores how the current political landscape in America—characterized by a surge in attacks targeting queer and women’s bodies—influences our vision of ourselves and our own bodies. There has been a growing call in our society to define the body within the binary terms. Eriksson’s own body finds itself under constant scrutiny, its performance of gender continually assessed and tested. This continuous scrutiny has affected their painting’s imagery. Now there exists within them a shifting mass of bodies, asking the viewer questions about perceived identity.

Eriksson received their BFA in painting from the University of Florida and graduated from the Sequential Artists Workshop year-long program.
