Welcoming Artist Lori Mirabelli

Canvas Gallery is excited to welcome Toronto artist Lori Mirabelli and her bold, urban abstracts & mixed media cold wax panels.

Growing up, I never quite understood the purpose of Abstract art.  It didn't make sense to me.  I truthfully was all about realism and making sure I captured everything I saw perfectly.  It was in my mid-thirties when I realized why realism captivated me so.  It all boiled down to control. 

It was during one of my university classes that I discovered what Abstract Art was all about.  I'm sure it's different for everyone.  When I paint abstracts it allows me to not focus on what I see, but how I feel and the energy that comes with that.  For a short period of time, I get to let go of my need for control, take risks, and lose myself in the piece that I'm creating.  I surrender to my brushes, paints, and canvas and let the journey begin.  There is truly nothing else that gives me greater self-awareness then when I'm creating art.
