Lorraine Toler & Lynne Farren | "Aloof and the Woof!"
June 2nd through October 6th, 2018
***Save the date*** Artist Reception: Monday, June 25th from 5pm to 7pm
"My name is Lorraine Toler and I am an artist residing in Tacoma Washington. I studied oil painting, acrylic painting and photography in the Fine Arts Program at Washington State University.
I have many diverse sources of inspiration from the last queen of Korea to a wasting disease of the Pacific Northwest Sea Star population. My driving force and common thread is finding a subject, reading and researching the subject and then interpret the story with a narrative of images.
I recently discovered that I also delight in painting pets. I have always been a pet person, so it is a natural progression. Like many, I anthropomorphize my pets and they always become part of my family. During the process of painting an animal it is like getting to know a new friend. It is always an honor to paint a much loved pet.
My primary medium is acrylic paint. My style and process is influenced by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and the evocative way he interpreted themes of life, death, and family as well as the contemporary California artist Hung Liu and the way she paints Chinese History and her own personal experiences of oppression in an authoritarian society. I strive to create in the way that these artist do. I admire the way that they tell a story through a single piece or a series. I admire art that can make your smile, or cry."
