Lori Granato is local artist living and working in the Quad Cities. Granato starts her paintings with erratic yet controlled strokes and begins her abstract paintings without any intention of their completed composition. Her color choices and the initial brush strokes continue to form a more cohesive arrangement as she responds intuitively to the hues and patterns. Granato works quickly to avoid any conscious judgement, relying instead on her inner emotions and subconscious mind to direct her work. Two of her pieces, pictured above, are in our collection, but you can see more of her works in her gallery, LL Studios – located just a couple blocks away from The Current, or on her website!

Fun Fact: Although the final pieces are an expression of Granato’s inner self, the themes of light versus darkness and of chaos versus harmony touch upon common points of experience intended to inspire an emotional response in viewers.
