Lori Bagnérès, a visual artist born in Ontario, and living in North Vancouver B.C., completed her MFA in contemporary art from L’école Nationale des Beaux Arts de Grenoble in 1993. She currently pursues multiple creative interests as an artist/curator/educator in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland and shows her work in public and private galleries in B.C. and Ontario. Her paintings are held in corporate and private collections throughout Canada, the US, Europe and Australia.
Lori’s mixed media artwork derives its depth from the interconnectedness of spaces that humans share with the environment. Images of serene landscapes meld with an edgy, cultural world. Lori exposes the dichotomy between urban, graffitied surfaces and her natural surroundings.
