Abstract: "Wreath" is a cut paper collage created by Erin Harmon in 2014. The collage is gouache on paper that was cut or torn into nearly 500 pieces and collaged to show a whimsical wreath. The collage is framed under plexiglass. Professor Erin Harmon was raised in the suburbs of southern California where the natural desert is sated by hundreds of miles of aqueducts to produce obsessively groomed lawns. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in studio art, she earned her MFA in painting from Rhode Island School of Design. She has been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions around the country including at Tiger Strikes Asteroid, Los Angeles; Field Projects, New York; the Target Gallery at the Torpedo Art Center, Alexandria, VA; the Atlanta Artists Center & Gallery, GA; and the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, TN. She holds the James F. Ruffin Chair of Art at Rhodes College.
Description: This artwork was installed in the information commons area in Barret Library in 2019. It was previously installed in the fireplace room in the refectory as part of the re-decorating of the refectory to honor Dr. Marjorie Haas's inauguration in January 2018. The college purchased this painting from Professor Harmon in May 2019.
