Lora Fosberg shares her creative process with visitors, examining the subtle intricacies and intimacies of life in her drawings and paintings, which are often grouped to form wall-sized installations. She is best known for her distinctive graphic style that includes pen and ink on rice paper or silk, washes of subtle color, photo-transfers, collaged elements, and poignant and witty texts.
She draws from her memories of childhood, the interrelationships of emotions, and her perceptions of mundane aspects of everyday life. A former MCA UBS 12 × 12 artist, Fosberg received her BFA from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
She also is available to sign copies of her new book, The End of the Beginning, a collection of her work from the last 10 years.
