New digital lenticular photographs by New York-based artist Erika deVries. In this work, deVries photographs her daydreams and day-to-day experiences.
deVries creates performances for the camera, using landscape and place as set and stage. Her images of the everyday, such as blossoming branches, folding laundry, pumping breast milks, changing skies conjure poetic stories based on her emotions.
Erika deVries currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. deVries completed her MFA at Art Institute of Chicago in 1997 and currently teaches at New York University, Department of Photography & Imaging. Her recent exhibitions include Naming Tress (solo, still-photo/video installation, 2003), Roads and Pastimes (group, 2004) both at Buzzer Thirty, Queens, NY, and Watch What We Say (Radio Free Erika internet, Internet radio forum, 2004) at Schroeder/Romeo Gallery, Bro oklyn, NY. M.Y. Art Prospects presented her solo exhibition A Little Bird Told Me (still-photo and mixed-media installation) in 2002 at its former location.
