MIDNIGHT BLOOM, a solo exhibition of new paintings by the latest addition to the gallery’s roster, is suffused with vibrant colour, swirling with the rhythms of life, the richly expressive paintings of Erin Loree draw you in and don’t let go. While the field of abstraction has become densely populated, truly original voices in this contemporary art mainstay are relatively few. Erin Loree is one such voice, and this breakout show will prove it.
Erin Loree graduated with a BFA in Drawing and Painting from Ontario College of Art and Design University, where she was awarded the 2012 Medal for Drawing and Painting. Since graduating she has participated in numerous group shows including the influential Kim Dorland-curated I ♥ Paint 2 at Angell Gallery in Toronto, and Younger Than George: 12 Painters in their 20s and 30s at George Lawson Gallery in San Francisco. Solo exhibitions include GRIT/SHEEN at Project Gallery in Toronto and Become The Sky at Galerie Youn in Montreal. Loree’s work has been featured in Beautiful Decay and the Huffington Post. You can learn more about Loree from an amazing interview from the people at Lexiqutte.
