Erin Carty’s artistic practice utilizes painting, photography and video to create hypnotic imagery that allow the viewer to pause in time. Her figurative work utilizes the merging of painting and video to create artworks that evoke a sense of nostalgia and memory. The use of strong, saturated color palettes and the approach to multiple layers allows for works to be read and entered in a variety of ways. Erin Carty was born in Heidelberg, Germany in 1993 and has lived in many different towns and cities until settling in El Paso, TX. She holds a BFA in Studio Art with a minor in Psychology from Texas State University.  She is currently a Master's of Fine Art candidate at the University of Houston.
