Ashley Lohr (formerly DuRoss) is a painter in the classic sense, and in this solo exhibition of new works in oil on canvas, she explores imagery, realism, abstraction, texture and light.

Lohr is primarily interested in color and line, the overlapping of planes, the balance of light and shadow, and the manipulation of color. She explores interior spaces and structures in her work, highlighting the effects of light on surfaces. Digital photographs inspire her angles and compositions.

Each painting suggests more than one space inhabiting the frame, an intentional disruption that leaves the viewer finding something unexpected in her crops, skews and stretched perspectives.

Based in Petersburg, Alaska, Lohr is originally from Southern New Jersey and studied painting and drawing in Albany, New York, before moving to Alaska.
