Lori Popadiuk Paintings

About the artist
As an abstract artist living in Vancouver, BC, Lori recently returned from a 6 month sabbatical in the Netherlands. While abroad, she worked on reconstructing her approach to painting, by breaking down old habits, allowing and encouraging transformation. She took the time to gain self acceptance and freedom to be something different than before. Since her return, her work has evolved dramatically yet still preserves an obvious love for creating movement, texture and depth within a limited palette. Her new works are quite different, instead of the familiar look of peeling birch bark that lifts to reveal ephemera from days gone by, these new works are much more personal. They evoke complex dichotomies of calm vs. violence, rebellion vs. obedience, black vs. white, balance vs. imbalance. The techniques she uses are varied and spontaneous harnessing the attributes of acrylic paint, charcoal, pencil & ink to create a series of drawn imagery that lies close to her heart.
