Modalities of Expression
November 3 – November 24, 2015
Reception: Thursday, November 5, 2015 6-8 PM

“My works begin with an idea, a note, a drawing, and then develop from there,” artist Lorraine McInnes says, and in her colorful images, that development takes many routes. A keen observer of the world around her, McInnes turns her observations into studies of what lies beneath the surface. In some pieces, the artist's own face peers out at us through a mask. In others, we are presented with portraits of murderers. In all of them, her deep studies peel away their subjects’ defenses. The eyes of those subjects often become a gateway into their internal states, whether through the glowing eyes of a lion or the blank, almost pasted-on eyes of a serial killer.

Working in media that range from collagraphs and linocuts to paintings and digital prints, the artist makes effective use of her sharp eye for color and her ability to manipulate textures. “I want the viewer to look at my work and feel the emotion of it,” she notes, and the physical power of her images, combined with their subtlety and depth, make that emotional connection come alive.
