Lori Earley is a contemporary surrealist figurative artist who began exhibiting her works in 2004. Born and raised in New York, Earley was an accomplished and gifted artist from a young age. As a maturing adolescent, she discovered her distinct style and fondness for painting deeply personal subject matter. She then began her journey towards becoming a professional oil painter through fine art training at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Her innate passion for expressing mood and emotion on canvas and paper along with her mastery of technique in oil and graphite was soon recognized, in the United States and abroad. Earley was acclaimed as an exceptional new talent, praised for her authentic portraiture. Her stylized, elongated subjects echoed Mannerist elements and the dramatic lighting of the Baroque period. Her distorted realism drew attention from established artists, collectors, and galleries on the West Coast and immediately propelled Earley to the forefront of a burgeoning art movement. Her recognition as a leading female contemporary master painter grew internationally and moved Earley into the celebrated realm of solo exhibitions in New York City, Los Angeles, Seattle and London. Earley’s portraits have attracted an audience of collectors who treasure owning a rare, truly unique work of art. While her femme fatale portraits mature in style and intensity, they retain her signature ethereal quality that embodies an undeniably feminine force. Her portraits always capture elusive moments in the artist's individual perception and experience, viewed through her imaginative lens. Earley describes her work as "a combination of classical realistic rendering with a personal element of distortion."
Lori Earley's work has appeared in NYArts Magazine, The New York Post, WeAr Magazine, Bon Magazine, Fefé Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, Elegy, Rojo Magazine, Direct Art Magazine, Traffic, The New York Sun, Fine Art Magazine, The L Magazine, Hi Fructose Magazine, and Home and Garden Magazine.
