Biography

Drew Ernst’s figurative, realist paintings showcase emblems of Americana from the artist’s everyday life and are infused with the glamour of cinema. His large-scale oil works are hyper-detailed with heightened lighting. The Inside features a girl and boy curled on a wooden floor in a yin and yang–like formation; in Sadness and Alcohol, a woman in an orange halter neck dress frowns at the viewer while bathed in yellow light. Ernst captures the erotic power of his female subjects, who pose with boxing gloves or forthright expressions. His still life paintings of car tires, motorcycles, and leather boots emphasize the tactility of worn materials.
