Erin Loree: The Swirl: Loree’s Mark on the Gallery’s Collection
On View: January 10 - March 28, 2020
Curated by Heather McLeese

The Swirl presents contemporary artist Erin Loree and her painterly dialogue with the Tom Thomson Art Gallery’s Collection. In June of 2019, the Gallery invited Loree into the vault to explore and select paintings, artifacts or drawings that resonated with her for development of a new painting series. Her vault selections gravitate towards notable historic and contemporary landscape masters like Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer, and Emily Carr, as well as David Milne, Roly Fenwick and Allen Smutylo. Her contemporary responses, oscillating between representational and abstract, challenge the notion of traditional landscape painting and speak to the mystic forces present in nature.

Erin Loree’s The Swirl exhibition is supported by Upper Canada Stretchers. A special thanks as well to the Royal Ontario Museum for the loan of butterfly specimens accompanying this exhibition.
