“My Secret Roller Coaster”
Lora’s life experiences have brought her to a place where she finds herself driven to create art about who she is, what moves her and what she feels. This collection of images, was curated from two separate series, “My Secret” and “Emotional Roller Coaster”. Both series, although completely separate entities, share common themes of emotional exploration. “My Secret” explores emotions of grief, loss and expressed compassion to those who are left behind following the tragic loss of a loved one. “Emotional Roller Coaster” reflects more everyday emotions that people experience daily. Topics such as fear, worry, and anxiety are some of the themes seen in this body of work.
The collection of images selected for “My Secret Roller Coaster” reflect the highs and the lows of the emotions we feel or identify with as human beings. Often building physical sets by hand to create intimate, emotive and evocative self-portraits, Lora creates images that reflect ideas and emotions that viewers are drawn to regardless of their personal journeys.
