About

Loren Myhre writes of his work, "I grew up with a father who is a gardener and horticulturalist. We had many greenhouses on our property and at a very early age, I would assist him in the nursery with transplanting a wide variety of plants and flowers. Working in the greenhouses presented a wordless world of possibility and freedom. The greenhouse existed as this laboratory for the cultivation of beauty that could exist apart from understanding or explanation. Being inundated with the beauty and magic of that creative labor has carried over to how I give attention to works of art. The poet Theodore Roethke is quoted as saying that his interpretation of the greenhouse, “is the symbol for the whole of life, a womb, a heaven on earth.” His quote resonates strongly within me. I believe that the making of art is the restorative process of bringing a form of “heaven to earth”. I aspire for my work to be a hybrid that feels equally rooted in this world and yet having been born from another. I enjoy infusing in works of art notions of familiarity with passages of complete ambiguity. Objects that possess the ability of feeling particularized while slipping into free associative passages of poetry and profundity." Loren received his MFA from Parsons School of Design
