Erica-Lynn Huberty’s work is fiber-based, though she earned her MFA in Painting in 1995 from Bennington College where she trained with Amy Sillman and Andrew Spence. After a near-fatal car accident in 2005, Huberty looked to her childhood obsession of needle-pointing as a way of reclaiming the devastating physical injuries and psychological trauma. Her work mingles textiles and sewing arts techniques with watercolor and ink, embroidery, crochet and knitting, loom-woven grounds, mediums overlapping as if done simultaneously, and exploring the historical tradition of “women’s work.”  The process is at once tedious, time-consuming and physically demanding, as well as a symbol of feminine self-worth.  Sometimes, the narrative is allowed to develop organically from textures and images on existing textiles, or in segments of her own sketches, scraps of trim, lace and appliqués, crocheted strands; at other times, a set mythos is constructed from her own fictional or autobiographical narratives.  She is informed by 17th-19th Century naturalist drawings, self-taught and folk art traditions, and by environmental and architectural factors, particularly the fragility of endangered environments, flora and fauna, and vanishing historically-significant sites.  Her art has been exhibited at Racine Art Museum, WI; David&Schweitzer Contemporary, Brooklyn; Ricco Maresca Gallery and Denise Bibro Fine Arts in Manhattan; Sara Nightingale Gallery, Sag Harbor, and Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, NY.  She has most recently created site-specific installations at an abandoned beach house in Bridgehampton, for MATTA in SoHo, the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum in Sag Harbor, NY, and on Mary Mattingly’s Wetland, for The Parrish Art Museum’s ambitious “Radical Seafaring” exhibition.
