Lenora Yerkes | Too Much Like Falling | Homme Gallery March 14-28, 2024

Lenora Yerkes, a comics artist as well as a painter, draws on both low and high art traditions in creating unreal landscapes and the figures that live in them. Always narrative and often sequential, her paintings rely on metaphor and archetypes to tell disquieting, moody stories about family and the individual.

Her narrative drawings were the subject of her 2019 artist residency at the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, her 2022 residency with Short Run Seattle, and recognized by a 2020 Artist Fellowship Grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities. Her comic “Rage Queen” was included in Drawing Power (Abrams ComicsArts Fall 2019), edited by Diane Noomin, an anthology named by the New York Times one of the best comics of 2019. She is a graduate of the California College of Arts and Crafts, where she was a Yozo Hamaguchi Scholar. She is a member of The Residents Collective, founded in 2022.
