About the Work
I first met Erica at Article and always loved her, and her work. This is particularly relevant to me as I grew up in Gonville and appreciate the simple and humble themes In Erica’s work. However often small, they represent hugely stylistic and historic themes and I like the way she notices these things we all look past - until they're gone.
- Jack Mitchell-Anyon, local business owner and musician, for the June 2021 instalment of the My Choice exhibition series.


The arches in this work make reference to the unusual stucco wall that surrounds a house located at 69 Tawa Street in Gonville, Whanganui.
