Aimee Erickson at Meyer Gallery

Aimee Erickson, Earth and Sky No.1 (2021), oil on canvas

In a new body of work inspired by being and longing, painter Aimee Erickson expresses the contradictory emotions of mindful presence and nostalgic yearning through evocative representations of landscape.

Her work is grounded in realism. Through a combination of loose brushwork, palette knives, and straight-edge tools, she brings elements of abstraction into her compositions.

“Color has emotional weight and is related to the shape of space,” Erickson says in a statement. “Drawing or painting, for me, means to look at the thing and transmit its vitality to the canvas.”

BE/LONGING, an exhibition of her work, opens with a 5 p.m. reception on Friday, Nov. 19 (through Nov. 26). Masks are required.
