Erika Sorby is a painter, drawer and printmaker residing in regional NSW, Australia. A qualified teaching academic, Sorby explores the strength and passion of the female portraiture alongside still-life assemblages which reference a contrast of raw yet refined elegance. Predominantly working with oils, Sorby captures emotion with powerful bold strokes of colour and line. Sorby has recently been awarded several art prizes and has exhibited in an impressive list of solo and group shows in Australia.
Singularity is defined as both the state of being singular, and in physics is the term used to classify the mass at the centre of a black hole. This body of work focuses on elevating the ordinary through the removal of the 'typical' background characteristic of a still life artwork, which is often a crowded distraction. What remains is the pure essence of the subject presented.
