Erin Cunningham is based in Austin, Texas. She received her BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2003 and an MFA in Studio Art from The University of Texas at Austin in 2007. With a focus in sculpture, her work utilizes material combinations, such as cast metals, and the female figure to explore dualities of masculine and feminine, disposable and precious, fragility and strength.
Cunningham is a founding member of ICOSA Collective, an artist-run exhibition space in Austin TX. She currently holds a position as an Assistant Professor of Practice in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas at Austin.
