Erika Hibbert

Born in South Africa Erika Hibbert spent most of her life in Johannesburg before moving to Botswana and then Atlanta, Georgia in 2009. Executed in charcoal, graphite, oil paint, and photography her art reflects the visual traditions of drawing and printmaking. Hibbert’s imagery exists between the disastrous and the wonderful, torn between the desire to void and the necessity to acknowledge the human condition. Meticulously executed, the work in this exhibition employs her skills in composition, painting and the Japanese tradition of gyotaku.

Erika Hibbert is a fellow of the Ampersand Foundation and has exhibited in Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America.
