C.J. Lori

Oil Painter

C.J. Lori is an oil painter living in Brookline, Massachusetts. Her work reflects her interest in literature, anthropology and psychology, as well as an abiding fascination with the natural world. Often called “Neo-surrealism” or “magic realism,” Ms. Lori’s paintings explore the complex relationship between humanity and the environment. She exaggerates or distorts color, form and composition to emphasize sensations that are often contradictory: clarity and mystery, excitement and sorrow, beauty and decay.

Ms. Lori’s artwork has been exhibited in solo and group shows throughout New England, and in New York and Chicago. She has a solo exhibition, Close to the Trees, in June, 2019 at Galatea Fine Art in Boston. Her work has been shown at the Danforth Museum in Framingham in OFF THE WALL, Community of Artists, and Figure, Fantasy and Illusion, Selections from the Arthur S. Goldberg Collection. In 2007, she won first prize in Paint!, a national exhibition juried by artist Gerry Bergstein at the South Shore Arts Center.

Committed to art activism, Ms. Lori served in 1997 as First Vice-President of the National Women’s Caucus for Art, and for several years as President of the Boston Chapter. Ms. Lori is represented by Galatea Fine Art in Boston, where she serves as Vice President and Exhibitions Chair, and by 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington. Her other interests include traveling, reading (especially Henry James), watching professional football, and walking in nature.
