“What felt relevant in our current political climate was the revelation that in the 19th and 20th centuries women were not allowed to study sexual botany because it was considered too vulgar for their minds and eyes, despite the status of flowers and gardening as being a traditionally feminine sphere.” — Erin Lynn Welsh
Erin Lynn Welsh (b. 1984) depicts expressive impressions of the natural landscape. Comprised of broad gestural brushstrokes, Erin’s mark making captures the unpredictability and volatility of nature while also offering a tool for abstraction, allowing her botanical forms to conjure a greater emotional resonance. Erin harnesses the historical symbology of the natural world, from the awesome power of the sublime landscape to the poignancy of a simple flower, to explore the contrast between beauty and violence.
