Lorrie Fredette says:
"My installations and sculptures are inspired by environmental and medical news stories pulled from today's headlines as well as historical events…. Once I've chosen an area of focus, I embark on a rigorous course of research and gather images, which I then alter, vet and reject through an elaborate system designed to completely subvert and distort any likeness to the original source."
Lorrie Fredette creates site-specific investigations that examine beauty, harmony and comfort to comprehend the incomprehensible aspects of infection, pandemic and plague.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally including solo and group exhibitions in the U.S. and Europe. She is the recipient of awards that include MARK 09 and Strategic Opportunity Grants from the New York Foundation for the Arts (2009 and 2007 respectively).
Fredette holds a BFA in sculpture from the Herron School of Art/Indiana University. Cynthia-Reeves in New York represents her work.
