Abigail Ogilvy Gallery is proud to present The Consistency of a Sunset, an exhibition featuring Toronto based painter Erin Loree and Charlotte based fibers artist Katrina Sánchez. As many of ” us return to the world of seeing artwork in person, these two artists fill our senses with color, exaggerated marks and materiality, showing us their process as part of the finished artwork and communicating the emotion packed pieces. The interaction of painting and fiber art push the viewer to engage, considering the process itself, and allowing them to experience the history behind the creation of the work. The exhibition is ongoing through June 6, 2021.
Erin Loree’s paintings explore the power of uncertainty in process, noting that each work is a journey of discovery. The artwork itself becomes a visual result of this exploration, with Loree “in the delicate balance between intention and chance, transformation and inversion, and how the unanticipated often reveals itself in unlikely places.” The environmental motifs in her work nod to this idea of reliability in a shifting atmosphere, serving as a constant force to look to when its surroundings are ever evolving.
In her body of magnified weavings, Katrina Sánchez highlights not the environment itself, but the way we as viewers engage with it. As Sánchez writes, “The ideas of community, healing, and renewal are in alignment with the processes of my work, taking many parts that come together to make a whole.” The tactility of the work invites the viewer to play, evoking feelings of familiarity and comfort through this multisensory engagement.
