Soot follows a narrative of hand-drawn figures whose forms are constantly changing, erasing, and appearing. The artist switches the medium from charcoal on paper to marker on plexiglass throughout and manipulates the paper by tearing and taping. Erin Pollock graduated from Whitman College and did postgraduate studies at Gage Academy in Seattle and Studio Art Centers International in Florence before receiving an MFA from the New York Academy of Art, where she is currently a postgraduate Fellow.
