Phoenix Artist Erika Lynne Hanson on Loving Failure, Obstruction, and Richard T. Walker

What happens in the studio shouldn't always stay in the studio. Studio Visit is a weekly series that profiles artists in their studios. We ask them questions, they provide answers, and then we have a nice discussion about their work. This week: Erika Lynne Hanson, assistant professor of Fibers and Socially-Engaged Practice at ASU.

Erika Lynne Hanson is an artist who's relatively new to Phoenix. In 2013, she relocated from the Midwest and was appointed assistant professor at Arizona State University. Her first exhibition in Phoenix, "Walk quietly, keep looking.," took place in Halt Gallery's shipping container on Roosevelt Row from November 21 through December 7, 2014. Hanson creates installations that explore landscape by incorporating weavings, videos, and webcam screengrabs.
