Loren Erdrich works in the realm of emotional memory. Painting on both two and three dimensional surfaces, her figures embody an aesthetic of achieved imperfection – a precious balance between what seems structured and what seems out of control. Beautiful and disturbing at once, the work is heavy with desire - for intimacy, communication, a validation of mutual existence or non-existence. Ideals and expectations of femininity are subverted through their distortion. This is a visual poetry on the complexities of human relationships.
