<ӣƵ class="elementor-heading-title elementor-size-default">Background

Erica Mendritzki is an assistant professor of fine art at NSCAD University. She holds a BFA from Concordia University, Montreal, QC and an MFA from University of Guelph, Guelph, ON.

My work has been supported by funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Council for the Arts, the Winnipeg Arts Council, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and the Tri-Council New Frontiers in Research Fund.

Website: ericamendritzki.com

My current studio practice and research centres on themes of improvisation, grief and absurdity, and engaging with art history through critical misinterpretation. My studio work is grounded in painting and drawing, and extends at times into performance, sculpture, photography and writing. I am currently collaborating with researchers in other fields (ecology, health, social sciences, land-based history, sustainability studies) to investigate vocabularies and rituals for dealing with climate grief and eco-anxiety.
