Loretta Mae


Translation in progress

Focusing on matters of identity, the work of Loretta Mae Hirsch can be viewed as an extended narrative of conflicting female roles. The scenes she portrays are inspired by the female condition and the artist’s personal history alike. Contemplating her own cultural identity in conjunction with femininity in general, gender-related mythologies, and contemporary society, she addresses the issues related to the physical and mental state of women today. Executed in the form of delicate, figurative drawings, Loretta Mae’s works present a range of recurring themes such as the color red, the ribbon, and especially the deer - “der Hirsch” in German.

Born in Oklahoma, Loretta Mae Hirsch studies at Glasgow School of Art, completing her BFA at Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2011, she obtained her MFA at the New York Academy of Art. A world traveler, she developed a distinguishable visual language over the years of depicting an elaborate personal mythology. She uses both traditional and unconventional materials, from ink, pencil, markers, and paper, to glitter and sequins. She participated in over 50 international group exhibitions and performances and realized five solo exhibitions to date.
Loretta Mae Hirsch lives and works in Cologne, Germany.
