Erika Stearly has been making paintings of domestic spaces since 2010. She's found inspiration in vintage home remodeling magazines, the IKEA catalog, photos taken in friends' houses, searching sublet rental ads on Craigslist, and most recently though Instagram.
Using a combination of watercolor and acrylic paint, Stearly quickly sketches in the setting. Despite being loosely rendered, exaggerated and often brightly colored, the collection of domestic items depicted still manage to evoke the sense of a particular place. Stearly's paintings are often titled by street address.
