The Alberta Society of Artists is proud to present “A Way Through the World”, an exhibition featuring the works of Lori Sokoluk, ASA. 

About The Artist

Born in Edmonton, Lori spent many years in New York City, Boston, Montreal and Vancouver prior to returning to the prairies. She now lives and works in Smoky Lake, Alberta. Lori shares her skills and passion for art making through teaching and guest critiques with a wide selection of institutions and artist groups. She exhibits across Canada and the United States in juried shows at galleries and critically acclaimed art fairs, and is a Juried Member of the ASA. 

Working primarily in acrylic, drawing media (graphite, soluble crayons, chalk) and sometimes collage, she allows considerable room for chance as she works rather than tightly controlling the process. Each step in the process suggests possibilities for the next. deep attachment to landscape and mystery are readily evident in her artwork. From childhood road trips across the prairies to the most recent abstract work, she pays attention to organic shapes and colors, shifting perspectives and layered perception. Her architectural background provides a structural and conceptual framework, and years of meditation practices are echoed in the search for the beauty, power and mystery that underlie the things we see and experience in everyday life.

Artist’s Statement

This series of monotypes evokes many methods we use to find our way through our lives: stories we hear, fables we believe in, maps and prior experiences we reference, and the courage and inner willingness to try new directions.

The relatively small scale of the work necessitates an intimacy from the viewer that reflects the very personal nature of each individual’s journey. Uneven vignette edges on many of the pieces evoke ideas of maps, torn leaves, and plein air watercolours I’ve done over the years.

Titles speak of fairy tales, dreams and memories that influence our perception and choices.
