"As we enter the second year of the pandemic, one of the feelings foremost in my mind is grief. How do we process the losses that continue to accumulate? TR Ericsson’s solo show “Pale Fires” offers a moving example.
Ericsson’s exhibition is not about the pandemic; it’s about his mother, Sue, who died by suicide in 2003. The artist has amassed an archive of items related to her life that form the raw material for his ongoing series “Crackle & Drag.” The show at Totah is composed entirely of these works, the gallery freighted with absence and loss."
