Erika Lee Sears and the Beauty of the Quotidian
Erika Lee Sears' paintings focus on the quotidian objects in the life of a mom--lemons, balloons, teacups. We love the simple honesty belying a complex and masterful grasp on form and color in these still life paintings.
Sears is a self taught oil painter whose work was featured in the last four seasons of the television show, "Portlandia." Her paintings are best known for daring color choices in rendering slices of lemons, oranges, and cups of liquid with beauty and ease.
