Lorraine Thorarinson Betts

The journey of art is the telling of a story, a journal of a day, an era, a moment. As life is built day upon day, art is built layer on layer, in reflection. The complexity of technique layers into each work the ideas that read back to the journey, through the strata of colour, shape, and texture.

I came to art by way of music - one seems to have led to the other. There is understanding in the language of art. Brahms, Samuel Barber, and Pat Metheny may have explored the same sentiment from very different points of view, but the sentiment is nonetheless understood. So the compelling human narrative is the force that needs expression.

My focus has involved oil on paper in the form of monotypes and various modes of printmaking in recent years. Lately I’ve returned to painting on canvas and panel to explore greater texture and scale.

Making art just seems like a natural state of being. I love the journey, the saga in reflection, and the rendering of what fascinates.
