The ARTS Project proudly presents:
An installation by Lori Jensen-Brazier
October 17 – 28, 2017
Tuesday October 17, 6 – 8 p.m.
Lori Jensen-Brazier, the first artist under our Emerging Artists Studio Program, is wrapping up her residency with us in the best way: a solo exhibition. Join us on October 17 to celebrate Lori’s new work and what she has accomplished during her residency with us.
In Rezoning, the destruction of our natural environment through rapid urbanization is examined through the process of printmaking, installation, sculpture and video. In utilizing new and repurposed building materials, the loss of the physical natural environment and the consequential negative effects on society are witnessed in the new man-made habitat. Now merely a memory, the tree is no longer available to offer a sense of balance and escape; instead an environment of isolation and desolation replace the restorative nature of the forest.

Emerging Artists Studio Program
Launched in November 2016, the Emerging Artists Studio Program is a fully-funded residency for recent visual arts graduates. With one year of private studio space, a materials budget, marketing support and mentorship opportunities, in addition to a culminating exhibition in our gallery, emerging artists in this program can explore their art without the fear of financial failure.
Thank you to the generous donors who funded this residency at The ARTS Project. Your support provided Lori with the resources, mentorship and community that made this exhibition possible.
Lori graduated from the Fanshawe Fine Arts Program in April 2015. She was on the Dean’s List and her final installation was selected by the college for the BMO 1st Art! Invitational Student Art Competition. Lori is a member of Print London and a member of their Steering Committee. She also volunteers at Museum London as a tour guide and works at the London Community Chaplaincy, teaching art in their after-school program.
Lori’s artistic work explores the various methods of print including relief, silkscreen, collagraphy and collage, as well as sculpture and film. Her subject matter focuses on nature and its restorative benefits, while addressing the destruction of our natural world through rapid urbanization and the detrimental effect on mankind and our environment.
