  • Marc Struss Installation, 2017

Erika Harrsch often chooses as subjects female figures, and place them in very intimate settings. Embedded in a surreal or dreamlike milieu are organic forms, usually animals, insects, jellyfish, clouds, and flying objects in a kind of pictorial eco-system that tries to dive into the core of what it means to be a woman. Although she frequently pays homage to classical painters, the contemporary spin and visual expressions empower the central figure, with ominous undertones where the reverse gaze of the subject creates an unsettling and complex reality. With her paintings, Harrsch investigates aesthetic perceptions within contemporary perspectives. Her multidisciplinary art stems from her long studies of classic painting–portraiture, live model drawing, and still life–often Inspired by great masters that influenced her early practice.

The series of self-portraits were exhibited at Marc Straus gallery in NY. "The Incredible Likeness of Being" In Erika Harrsch's ensemble of mixed-media paintings, she explores issues of identity through her different cultural lenses, depicting the (her) female body connected to elements of animal anatomy, both mammals or insects, with eroticized sketches and a diversity of media associated with opulence and sensuality.
