Ethereal is a series of oil paintings that express humanity’s ongoing search for something beyond the ordinary struggle and grit of everyday life—something greater, more beautiful and filled with truer light than we experience as mere mortal beings. The work in this exhibition will lift the imagination from earthly to heavenly realms.
Lori Ferguson is a contemporary impressionist painter who lives and makes art immersed in an urban Canadian landscape. Lori paints to counteract the inner unrest that modern life manifests into daily reality as physical and mental health challenges. Full of characteristic brush strokes and a palpable quality of energy, Lori’s paintings are alive with motion, colour and light. Using oil paint as her main weapon of choice, she expects that her work will elicit a response to both the familiar and the unexpected in her passionately painted forms.
