Lori Mirabelli is a lyrical abstract painter based in Newmarket, Ontario. She uses a personal language of form, colour and line to express her love for the mid century modern movement, using acrylic medium. She hopes to inspire people to live their lives with more truth, honesty and values that were prevalent in the mid century years.
Her body of work is comprised of strong bold lines, and geometric form that is coupled with an emphasis on space. She aspires to remind us of the meaning behind the mid century modern design movement.
At a time of hardship, despair, and minimal resources, society used innovative practical methods to rebuild itself. Modern design was a simplistic form that was honest and pure. The need to be flashy or expensive wasn't necessary for beauty and pieces created during this period, as a result, have remained timeless.
Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Lori Mirabelli studied psychology and visual art at the University of Laurentian. She has exhibited in a number of exhibitions the Toronto and surrounding areas and her paintings are in many private collections nationally and internationally.
