Erin Loree is a Canadian painter based in Toronto. Her work explores themes of transformation, inversion, and duality, with an emphasis on the process as a journey of discovery. Through a complex process of adding and removing paint, she creates richly-layered surfaces that evoke emotional states and psychic spaces. Forms appear to melt and morph into one another, making it difficult to tell where one ends, and another begins. Each painting conveys a vivid expression of energy and motion captured in time - an endless exploration into how a still image can appear to be in a constant state of becoming.

Erin Loree completed her BFA at OCAD University in 2012 and received a Certificate of Advanced Visual Studies from OCAD’s Florence Program. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including Toronto, Montreal, New York, San Francisco, and the UK, with a recent museum solo exhibition at the Tom Thomson Art Gallery in Owen Sound, Ontario. She has work in a number of collections including Toronto Dominion Bank, Holt Renfrew, and Imago Mundi. Loree was awarded the Robert Pope Artist Residency at NSCAD University in Halifax, and has participated in residencies at Artscape Youngplace in Toronto, and Sachaqa Centro de Arte in the Peruvian Amazon Jungle. She has been the recipient of numerous awards including the 2012 Drawing and Painting Medal, and Nora E. Vaughan Award from OCAD University, as well as an Ontario Arts Council grant. Loree’s work has been featured in,, CBC Arts, the Toronto Star, Beautiful Decay, Booooooom, and Huffington Post.
