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.
Uprise Art presents an exhibition on Broome Street featuring photographs by Anna Beeke and paintings by Erin Lynn Welsh. The artwork in the exhibition was inspired by each artist's questions of their origins. Both artists traveled from coast to coast, documenting their explorations of the American landscape through the use of film photography and painting.

Anna Beeke (b. 1984) is a Los Angeles-based documentary and fine arts photographer. Her work captures ephemeral moments that examine the symbiotic relationship between humanity and their natural surroundings. Her vieled lighting, composed frames, and seemingly unaware subjects create a mystical narrative evocative of fairy tales, a nod to Beeke’s interest in, and study of, literature. In addition to distinguished honors, her work has been featured in several international exhibitions. Beeke holds an MFA from the School of Visual Arts in Photography, Video, and Related Media as well as a BA in English from Oberlin College.
