Erik Wolken

Pleiades Gallery is excited to welcome Erik as our newest member artist. Erik’s pieces are graceful, lyrical, and show-stopping. We love how he blurs the lines between function, furniture, sculpture, and story.

“My path as an artist has traveled from being a traditional trained furniture maker to incorporating a more sculptural aesthetic in my work to finally exploring pure sculpture and to fluidly moving between all three. In the midst of this my guiding light  is to find a  rhythm and poetry in my pieces that is a confluence lines, color, texture and graphic imagery that tells a narrative, for at its most basic I think my work is about story telling. My pieces are often the result of a process of discovery. Seldom do I start with a plan written in stone but a series of rough pencil sketches and the belief that I can divine the meaning of a piece in the process of building it.”
