Ericka Sobrack was born and raised in a small mid-western town in Minnesota. She specializes in small and large-scale paintings portraying suburban domestic scenes of America in both acrylic and oil paint. Sobrack has participated in local and national juried exhibitions. She currently resides in Orlando, Florida and graduated in 2019 with a Masters of Fine Arts degree from the University of Central Florida.
I challenge traditional depictions of reality by orchestrating juxtapositions between the mundane and the eerie to create conflict and tension. By deconstructing and reassembling nostalgic domestic imagery with stark lighting and selective color, I suggest unanticipated narratives and psychological experiences that may be considered "suburban nightmares."
