Lori Field
About the author

Lori Field is primarily self–taught, having had less than a year’s formal training at SUNY Purchase. She began her artistic life as an illustrator and textile designer living and working in New York City. A little over ten years ago a series of life-altering events caused her to rethink the direction her creativity was taking. She began to do work that would be the beginning of her return to fine art. Lori started composing collages and then gradually began doing intricate drawings on old slate chalkboards. Currently, she does very detailed, obsessive colored pencil drawings on rice paper, which are cut out, sewn into, and then embedded into vibrantly colored encaustic paintings (pigmented wax and resin painted with the use of a heated palette). She also does intricate silverpoint drawings on gessoed paper containing the same kinds of symbolist figures that appear in her color work. Lori works specifically and deliberately with tools and mediums that are archaic and rare, putting a contemporary spin on the work through its’ content. Lori Field has shown in many group and solo shows nationally and internationally and has her work in the collections of several museums in the US, the Montclair Art Museum, the Brodsky Center for Innovative Print and Paper, and the Newark Museum among them. She has shown recently in New York City, Berlin, Miami, Nashville, Denver, Chicago and Los Angeles. She is represented by Claire Oliver Gallery in New York City.
