Thought Patterns by Lori Arbel Exhibition

Lori Arbel, a local artist who helped survivors in the aftermath of the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School shooting is getting her own exhibit. Lori Arbel’s “Thought Patterns” will be on display at The Pompano Beach Cultural Center, located at 50 W. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano Beach with an opening kickoff on January 10 from 6 – 9 p.m. will last til April 2. There will also be workshops and Q&A session with Arbel. The cost for the opening night is FREE.

Thought Patterns explores the inner psyche including the monotonous tasks of everyday life. Using marks and a reduced, neutral palette, the artist delves into thought patterns to question how we connect, respond, and make our mark on the world. Arbel embraces emotional introspection for content; creative expression as dialogue. Pen and ink lines, handmade paper and geometric shapes allow Arbel to express depth, texture and pattern that result in visually energetic and meditative renderings. The imperfections of the handmade paper and pop of gold illustrate metaphor, transforming sometimes negative energy into something beautiful. Her method of working is active. She places paper on a table so that she can maneuver around it from all sides. In this way, Arbel can consider composition and balance from multiple perspectives while being physically engaged with the process.
