Lori Glavin


I use a variety of materials and processes to make abstract images. My work includes paintings, collages, printmaking, small sculpture and sewing on fabric and paper. Experimentation across mediums is an important element in my artistic practice and I often jump between different projects, which all directly inform one another. 

My work is influenced by the patterns and rhythms of domestic life. In my paintings, I combine, collect, and sort – layering small bits to make an arrangement of color and shape that becomes a monument to minutiae.
