Erica Gibson

I create unique mixed-media sculptures using reclaimed, salvaged, and vintage materials. I sculpt faces, real and imagined, onto wood with paper clay, often incorporating natural elements coated with beeswax and damar resin. There is an embodied energy in old vintage and worn items. They have past lives. I like to imagine the stories they have to tell of where they’ve been and what they’ve seen. These stories, entwined with my own, make their way into my sculptures.
