Take a virtual tour of “These Days,” Erin O'Brien's first solo exhibition at the gallery featuring new abstract paintings.
Her work explores but doesn't resolve the dualities of figure and ground, certainty and uncertainty. She starts each piece with a simple line drawing, combining fragments of the body and architecture into a hybrid composition.
Erin’s colors range from bright to muted, and paint application varies from opaque to transparent. The areas of exposed linen in her paintings contrast with smooth paint and function as absences and presences within the work.
