Within these pages, lies my view of the world – slivers of its truth, beauty, impermanence, and mystery – as seen through the lens of a vintage Polaroid Land Camera. —Jen Ervin, notes from the Ark
Mysterious and hypnotic, the images transport us to an ineffable dreamlike realm where time stands still… —Kyra Schmidt, Artist/Educator/Writer, Aint–Bad Magazine
Ervin’s work falls directly in line of (Flannery) O’Connor and Mann, elaborating on the lures of The South. This work feels eternal, like it could have been made a hundred years ago, and will continue to be made a hundred years in the future. It is a fragment of a circumference, a red-painted section on a spinning bike wheel – only hitting pavement every time the South Carolina woods explodes into summer.
—Marissa Iamartino, Artist/Writer, Float Magazine
