Lori Earley's debut UK solo show, “Laments and Lullabies,” opened last week at London's Opera Gallery. The beautiful redhead, who has been praised for her authentic portraiture, reportedly takes around a month to make each of her flawless oil paintings.
Born and raised in New York, Earley was an accomplished and gifted artist from a young age. As a maturing adolescent, she discovered her distinct style and fondness for painting deeply personal subject matter. She then began her journey towards becoming a professional oil painter through fine art training at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
Her distorted realism drew attention from established artists, collectors, and galleries on the West Coast and immediately propelled Earley to the forefront of a burgeoning art movement. While her femme fatale portraits mature in style and intensity, they retain her signature ethereal quality that embodies an undeniably feminine force.
