Loren Erdrich

Loren Erdrich creates paintings that both aspire toward transcendence and revel in their physicality. Erdrich’s deliberate and open collaboration with her medium allows for discovery in every painting, and she uses her materials in unconventional ways to create a dynamic tension between deliberate and unintentional gestures.
She paints on raw muslin with water, dyes, pigments, and other water-based media, allowing the artist and her emerging figures to embrace and celebrate the strength of fluidity, vulnerability, and reactivity. Erdrich holds a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and an MFA from the Burren College of Art at the National University of Ireland, Galway.
She has been awarded residencies at Yaddo, Elizabeth Murray Artist Residency, Jentel Foundation, Santa Fe Art Institute, Sculpture Space, Vermont Studio Center, and Art Farm Nebraska, and was selected as a Hopper Prize Finalist for 2023. Erdrich has exhibited in solo and group shows internationally in cities including New York City, Paris, Los Angeles, Madrid, Shanghai, Miami, Berlin, Denver, Copenhagen, Houston, Rome, London, and San Francisco. Her work has been featured in DNA Magazine Mexico, Maake Magazine, ArtMaze Mag, Chicago Tribune, Vogue Italia, Cultured Magazine, and WhiteHot Magazine, to name only a few. In 2021, Erdrich collaborated with fashion designer Marc Jacobs to incorporate her paintings into their Resort Collection.
The artist lives and works in New York City, NY.
