Intuitive and Abstracted: Art by Lori Sokoluk
Lori Sokoluk is an artist based in Vancouver, BC. Her works are intuitive and abstracted in nature, with a focus on the act and process of art-making, though they are occasionally inspired by outside narratives and figures.
I’m quite inspired by Lori’s newest works, in her Port Town series. Each of these images is inspired by port towns that the artist has visited. Lori utilizes interestingly gray color tones, with heavy line art that seems to drag its way down the canvas. The works are very structural, and take on the aesthetics of blueprints, or schematics. I find them quite Illustrative in a rather gothic fashion.
Lori’s previous works have incorporated more color, tending toward a collaged aesthetic with abstract planes of color stuck on and overlapping one another.
