Toronto-based artist, Erin Loree engages with her material through an intuitive call and response technique, whereby she adds, removes, scrapes and adds layers of paint, allowing chance occurrences to reveal the final imagery, hovering between abstraction and figuration. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including Toronto, Montreal, New York, San Francisco, and the UK.
