Erin Wright at Sow & Tailor
Sow & Tailor is thrilled to announce the debut of The Host, The Thief, The Wives, and Their Lovers, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Erin Wright on February 10th, 2024, from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM at 157 W 27th Street, Los Angeles, CA, 90007.
The Host, The Thief, The Wives, and Their Lovers delves into the intricacies of social interaction within a dinner party, exploring the chaos and subtle nuances of human behavior and societal norms. Renowned for her meticulous photorealist work, hand-painted in acrylic on stretched canvas, Erin Wright showcases mastery in HER materials and visual language.
The Host, The Thief, The Wives, and Their Lovers centers around two central large-scale works and a collection of smaller vignettes, weaving a cinematic visual narrative of communal dining dynamics. One painting freezes a ritualistic table, embodying the host’s idealization and setting the stage for the unfolding drama. In contrast, the companion painting transforms the table into a silent witness, portraying spilled wine, scattered crumbs, and disheveled utensils—a narrative capturing the dynamic nature inherent in communal dining.
