In commitment to show artwork relevant to society, self-identifying trans non-binary queer artist Erin MacAdams shows their work in the Corrine Woodman Gallery May 12 – June 19. The artist has the standpoint that “Art is political and personal”, eager to tell their story. Everything in their art is informed by this point of view.
I believe that art can make a difference in our lives, both on a personal and societal level.
– Erin MacAdams
The strong use of symbolism, narrative, and color is rooted in MacAdams’s background as a tattoo artist. They use all kinds of traditional media and technology to create colorful work with a mixture of patterns, graphic design elements, and illustrative realism and figure drawing.
MacAdams grew up in Michigan and has a BFA from Eastern Michigan University. They have been living with their wife and cats in Oregon for the last 9 years. They are active in the local trans-led Non-Profit Mid Willamette Trans Support Network.
