Lori Sokoluk


Inspired by the landscapes in which she has lived – Canadian prairies, the intense cityscape of New York City, and most recently the West Coast rain forest – Lori’s realistic work captures just enough detail to launch the mind and heart. Executed in watercolors, acrylics, or drawing media, Lori has evolved a loose realism that evokes connections in the viewer to landscapes and dreamscapes of their own experience. Landscape also appears in abstract works that convey the spirit and energy of the landscape rather than depicting specific forms.
Her non-representational work draws upon years of yoga, meditation and martial arts practice to explore the depths of our being, both light and dark. Our struggles and our sublime nature are manifest in these powerful new works.

Lori uses acrylics, watercolors, graphite, and a variety of drawing media, often in combination. Exploration of the continuum between painting and drawing, mark-making, and color are her focus.
Born in Edmonton, Lori has lived and studied in New York, Boston, and Halifax. She now resides in Vancouver, a professional artist, sought-after instructor and demonstrator, after careers in architecture and software development.

Lori has studied privately, and at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Her work is included in private and institutional collections in Canada, the United States, Japan, Pakistan, India, and the United Kingdom. She is a member of REDSOKIL ARTS, a studio, teaching, and exhibition space in Vancouver, Canada.
Lori is inspired by Odilon Redon, John Marin, Gerhard Richter, and Mark Rothko, as well as the occasional glass of single malt scotch whiskey. She is an avid painter, teacher, and seeker of the epic story behind everyday life.
