About the Artist
Lorna was born and raised in California and is completing her B.F.A. degree from the University of New Hampshire. She has received The Edwin and Mary Scheir scholarship, the Daniel Valenza Art Scholarship, and is Dean’s list of the highest honors. She has moderated Instagram livestreams for Juxtapoz Magazine as well as Caddis Eyewear, aided with the installation of an 18ft mural on Broadway in Soho inside the Stance flagship store, and showed in Buoy’s Art Gallery. She is interested in material explorations and iterations. Directed by intuition, her depictions of organic shapes pushes the parameters of the canvas and opens the viewer to a fluid world through opaque and translucent colors.
Can fragility be structurally sound? I see my line quality in cracked concrete and tangled telephone wires. I see my shapes in maps and scientific textbooks. I am interested in burgeoning organic shapes, the reticulation of line work and the dialogue between the two. I have become enthralled with the fragility of my structural lines and the soundness of my organic shapes.
The biomorphic quality of my shapes creates a sense of intimacy that relates to the body within structures and spaces. I am interested in introducing a purposefully uncontrollable element into my process. The combination of the controlled and the uncontrollable creates a flow that is rooted in experimentation.
