"Be where you are, even for a snap. We are lured by the fastest, cheapest, biggest. We forget about authenticity. Art takes time. There are too many plastic things marketed as originals. We all have stories to tell. Use this work as a prompt for your own story. Be present and see. Be curious.
Lori Swartz began as a metal smith, creating sculpture, furniture and jewelry. She is also a painter, writer and a performer. Working as a multi-media artist has allowed her to express herself in ways that are both private and public. She does not have divided loyalties. She has one loyalty (art), with multiple expressions.
Her work can currently be seen in galleries and boutiques across the country."
