- M.F.A., Claremont Graduate University
Erica Ryan Stallones is an artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. She received her MFA from Claremont Graduate University, and has been teaching in the Art Department at Biola University since 2011. Her work seeks to capture, however briefly or imperfectly, that which prefers to remain hidden: the possibility and multiplicity surrounding each moment. Primarily a painter, she also uses performance, video, installation, writing, and other media as a means of engaging with relevant themes in more immediate and varied forms. The performance-based projects, which have been shown in alternative art spaces throughout the Los Angeles area, allow for collaboration and interpretation on the part of both the performers and the audience.
