"I like to work with traditional and non traditional techniques, combined with painting & printmaking, experimenting with concepts, color and contrasting materials," says Lorraine Agri. "My art is eclectic and deals with significant events that influence my emotions. Foremost in my mind are images that deal with life experiences. Experimentation with concepts, color and contrasting materials is part of my process. For me the act of painting becomes cathartic.

"Visual metaphors are very important, as metaphor encourages metamorphosis. The works change in the process of creating them. My paintings and prints feature abstractions of realistic and imaginary subjects, using mixed media and a variety of combinations to create unusual textures and surfaces."
