This week’s Artist in the Window is visual artist, Lori Bagneres. Born in Ontario and now living in North Vancouver, Lori received her art education in France at L’école Nationale des Beaux Arts de Grenoble.
Lori’s new body of work uses of images of crows to explore the continuous cycle of networking in today’s society. The Corvids (the family name for crows) diurnal, or daily cycle, mimics those of humans. In particular, the social behaviors of sharing, adapting, co-operating -and even spying, grieving and remembering who-did-what-to-whom- have been observed. The images of crows, our urban cousins, are layered into surreal settings through the use of mixed media techniques and offer visual explorations of common idioms that tell ironic tales of the ins-and-outs of communicating within our complex social structures.
Getting our wires crossed, Sharing the party line and It’s complicated are titles of paintings currently showing in our shop. Drop by this Saturday, March 31st, between 11-4 to watch Lori work on her composition entitled, Out of the Loop. To see more of Lori’s work, please visit her website, here.
