Zachary Keeting and Christopher Joy visit the studio of painter Erika Ranee.
Responding to Joy's observation that "total extremes... seem at play in each work... every painting has its own distinct voice," Ranee comments that "each painting is its own little torture... a new challenge, a new approach to using these materials that are in opposition to each other... straight-edge/biomorphic... the gloss and the flat, the thick and the thin, the immediate and the more deliberate and slow. It's always in each painting." Ranee continues, commenting: "I'm loud on canvas. I need a certain dynamic - a 'pow' feeling with the paint."
