Considering universal and always interesting themes of change, isolation and fear of the unknown, Lori Nelson creates remarkable paintings that juxtapose contemporary expression and classic style of her work. The characteristic strangeness in her art is embodied by the physical appearance of her subjects. Drawing the viewer into the mysterious world of fantastical creatures, she develops special relations between the environments and her characters, giving every of them a personality of their own.
"Continuing the adventures of my Cryptotweens, this latest series, 'Find My Friends,' takes place in a parallel universe where the subjects are neither child nor teen, human nor monster, and are on the verge of discovering their own personal powers. What makes this series different is the increased imagery of technology. As tech becomes increasingly apparent in our own landscape, it becomes ever more so in the world of my characters."
