Artist Focus: Lori Putnam

A closer look at the artwork of Lori Putnam

Lori Putnam’s work is characterized by loose and expressive brushwork, bold use of color and a keen sense of composition. It encompasses a wide range of subject matter, including landscape, still life and figurative works, each executed with a unique blend of realism and abstraction. The landscape paintings seen here capture each scene’s essence, conveying its visual appearance, mood, atmosphere and emotions. Infused with a sense of drama and dynamism, Putnam seeks to capture her subjects’ fleeting light and ever-changing character. “Using luminous and vibrant hues that are both bold and harmonious, my colors have a vibrancy and intensity that add a sense of vitality and personality to the paintings. My art celebrates life, nature and the human experience, rendered with a mixture of skill, passion and creativity.”

Painting primarily in oil, Putnam often travels to study and paint a location in preparation for her studio work. Therefore, when she begins a larger canvas from those studies, she rarely refers to photographs. “This ensures the studio pieces are fresh, exciting and full of bravura and feeling,” says the artist.
