Erik Rehman

Machines have re-defined
what it means to be alive,
altering our relationship
with our bodies, our minds,
with nature and with time:

to what degree
has technology become a prosthesis;
to what extent
have wires replaced nerves?

These sculptures are a vehicle
to express a semblance
of what we become
culturally, emotionally and spiritually
when we are geared
toward excess, expediency
and artificial modes of existence.

After earning a B.F.A. in ceramics from the Tyler School of Art, Erik Rehman is now a teacher at the University of Vermont's pottery co-op, and an organic farmer. His work has been shown in numerous exhibits in Vermont.

This artist resides in Burlington.
