Christmas Ball, oil on canvas, 80 x 120 cm

Kevin Geary (Artist; writer) on Fossi’s work When I first saw Lorraine Fossi's work, I was immediately stuck by two things; one, her great sense of color, and two, her excellent sense of composition. Her art displays an arresting quality that invites further inspection. When you come to see and realise that her paintings are not just pure abstract works, but about the sea, one is struck by the command and knowledge she possesses of the subject. Anyone who has sailed the sea, looked upon it, or gone through a storm on the sea, will recognise elements that she has managed to convey.  Many abstract artists today fail utterly to keep and hold your attention. Their work is decorative at best, and dismal in terms of its power to hold your attention and invite you in to see more each time you look at the work. Lorraine Fossi's absolute assurance of composition (a rarity, but necessity, with good abstract painting) ensures the viewer a thoroughly rewarding experience, and works that reward viewing many times. She's an outstanding artist.
