Lives and works in New York, NY
Born in 1978, New York based artist Loren Erdrich earned her BA from the University of Pennsylvania in 2000, her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2005, and her MFA from Burren College of Art through the National University of Ireland. Using organic and synthetic dyes and raw pigments mixed primarily with water on raw canvas and muslin, Erdrich creates atmospheric images that drift in and out of focus and wholly embody the unpredictable nature and fluidity of water. Figures merge with their environments and at times disappear completely. Erdrich guides us into a realm existing somewhere between the tangible earthly world and the spiritual beyond.
