Lori Harrison is a multi-disciplinary artist with a studio practice in Toronto. She first gained recognition through her award winning textile and furniture design work, which has been featured in prominent publications such as House and Home, Toronto Makes and others.
Beginning in 2018, Harrison shifted to making art and since then her work has been acquired by private collectors and public institutions across North America. She has exhibited in numerous juried group shows and recently had her first solo show.
Harrison’s art is a practice in noticing and celebrating the beauty found in the meeting points between the natural and manufactured worlds. She chooses to depict this intersection with beauty, celebrating the intimate tension we sense, and how it manifests in the real world around us. To her, this beauty is material and analog. Her work is tactile; she use textures – pieces of fabrics sewn together, plaster, paints and found objects – to give physicality to this tension and remind us of the importance of the physical world.
