Lori Stanford is a Los Angeles based artist exploring the perception of identity through her abstract figurative painting. Stanford is particularly interested in how identities influence one another. Combining bold colors and organic shapes into a composition suggestive of groups of people, Stanford’s work leaves room for the imagination to interpret.
Stanford launched her art career in Los Angeles in 2009 with a solo show dealing with Environmental and Social Justice. In 2010 she sold a collection of 33 paintings capturing the California Poppy to a medical facility in Palmdale, California. A solo show in 2014 entitled Dwellings dealt with global poverty, and in 2018 The Elephant in the Room exhibit was about racism in America. Pieces from Stanford’s American Woman series as well as the Time and Space collection are on display in four medical facilities in the Los Angeles area.
