Dr. Erica Grimm is an artist whose drawing practice remains at the core of her work. Through drawing, she inquires into embodiment, extending the meaning of body (and drawing) over a variety of materials and signifiers. Steel, lead, wax, ash and gold, PET scans and MRIs, depth, aerial and topographical maps—each of these ordinary materials, medical, and navigational imaging techniques make meaning and allow her to map both interior and exterior territories of the body. Extending this exploration by using animated gifs of her own angiograph projected onto steel and by inquiring into the epistemological implications of visual processes has fueled the completion of her PhD dissertation, The Aesthetics of Attentiveness, at Simon Fraser University.

Erica Grimm is Associate Professor and Chair of the Art + Design Department, School of the Arts, Media and Culture at Trinity Western University. Represented in galleries across Canada, she has had over 25 solo exhibitions and is in numerous private and public collections, including the Vatican Art Collection, Canada Council Art Bank and the Richmond Art Gallery. She was the Distinguished Nash Lecturer at the University of Regina (2002), the first prize recipient of the Imago National Juried Art Competition, and was honoured as the Distinguished Alumnae from the University of Regina.
