Field of Blooms by Erin Hanson: A Brush with Expressionism
Erin Hanson, Field of Blooms, 2016. Oil on canvas, 156 x 78 in.


LOS ANGELES, CA.- Erin Hanson is best known for her unsuppressed utilization of color and chunky yet precise brush strokes; her focus is typically of rolling hills, craggy rocks and patchwork skies. Her style and subject matter may be transitioning into something a touch more expressionistic with abstract liberties taken, as with this zoomed-in floral piece.

A Los Angeles native, Hanson can be found exploring the National Parks and California Coast when not holed up in her gallery and studio just north of Downtown LA, close enough to find excellent food, yet far enough to avoid the extreme bustle and traffic.

Field of Blooms is the pillar of her most recent Romance in Bloom collection. It measures 13-feet wide and when viewed in person leaves most slack-jawed.

Hanson’s use of color pits striking purples against apple greens and swirls of cherry reds; nary a color of the rainbow goes missing from the mix. Somehow it appears realistic, though clearly breaching into the realm of expressionism. This noted contemporary impressionist has coined the term “open-impressionism” to describe her work.

Collectors and fans often immediately associate the petite artist to the likes of Monet, Cezanne, William Wendt, and most frequently van Gogh, whose swirling patterns and contrasting colors seem to have set the precedent for Hanson’s unbridled representations of nature.

Field of Blooms can be viewed for a limited time at The Erin Hanson Gallery. The gallery is open by appointment, with walk-in hours 1pm – 6pm, Monday through Thursday.
