Artist Lori Larusso’s Retro Shapes and Bold Depictions of the Mundane

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Artist Lori Larusso created a body of work featuring domestic scenes that she refers to as Shapes. Bold saturated colors are painted on in flat sections of cut panels that emphasis form. Her works are intentionally stereotypical and represent mundane middle-America suburbia. She eliminates any unnecessary details or extra space with a design sensibility reminiscent to modernism. Larusso depicts retro kitchens, pepto bismol toned bathrooms, and the avocado green mountains with vague subject matter that is deliberately left open, leaving room for the viewer to relate to the imagery.
