The exhibition opens on 16 September and will feature Lori-Ann’s contemporary fine artworks over at Yelocentric’s studio in Bukit Damansara. The theme of the exhibition – WILD CARD.

Who is Lori-Ann Bellissimo and what does she do?
Lori-Ann Bellissimo is a contemporary fine artist whose paintings are rich and vivid yet easy on the eyes. This is a result of her unique method that pitches colour against depth. Her paintings take shape through a gradual process of using acrylic and mixed media trapped under individual layers of optically clear water-based resin; a final layer of resin seals the surface. This technique explores the paradox of spatial depth on a flat surface as the apparent shifting of colour and form within the painting gauges perspective.
The internal logic of each piece is a buried concentration of the object as revealed through traces of under-painting. Each plane overlaps and interacts with the painting’s physical surface and the form it describes. Abstract elements of design float on the edge of representation but are transformed by a congruous perspective or colour scheme.
Lori-Ann Bellissimo has consistently exhibited her work in Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and South East Asia and Europe. Her work is collected in private and corporate collections in Canada, the UK, the USA, Switzerland, Hongkong, Australia, Malaysia and Singapore. She is currently working from her studio in Toronto and spends her time working in Canada, Italy and Malaysia.
