Like flashes of memory
"Like flashes of memory, the architecture, advertising and automobiles that populate Erica Hauser’s paintings recall the aesthetics and cultural icons of the American mid-twentieth century. Hauser works from her own photographs as well as from collected source material, distilling the essential elements into sharply-focused descriptions of an indistinct past. And while citizens of the 1950’s were eager for a future of technological growth, space travel and global communication, it is with some nostalgia that we who have achieved such things reflect upon the features of a bygone era."
