Erin Elizabeth Sidebotham is a conceptual artist who utilizes unconventional materials in her artwork. her recent bodies of work utilize carriers of celebration such as cake, sprinkles, and confetti in addition to über traditional and loaded symbols such as gold leaf in an attempt to understand the paradoxical hierarchy of experiential value. She use a wide range of materials and approaches in my studio practice, paying Homage to monotony and subjugating celebration with chaos in a desperate attempt to capture fleeting moments while simultaneously surrendering to the inevitability of change.
