“My paintings capture scenes from my rural life, the magical shape shifting of the Indian River, and the shorelines of Rice Lake. These images have anchored my thinking about natural change and our own fragile temporality.”
Lorelei Lapp is a practicing artist from Indian River. Using oil paint, she re-creates the natural world around her. Lorelei’s eye is drawn to the scenes on the rural lines and watersheds near her home north of Rice Lake. The elements that shape her responses to these settings are those she draws the viewer’s eye to with her evocative use of colour and tone and focus. Lorelei has a particular love for often unnoticed marshes and the half-lit glens that border them. As she is called to pause and reflect on falling light, reedy shadow or forest depth, so too-she hopes-will others.
