Wall Fiction is pleased to share its official launch and inaugural online show with celebrated visual artist Lori Dell.

Lori Dell’s work engages with and reinterprets traditional imagery of architecture and landscape.

Gates and Portals explores Dell’s portrayal of history through architecture and sense of place in a series of paintings. “From tribal community’s sacred spaces to the lofty reaches of cathedrals, places of ceremony have historically been built with artfulness born of a region’s resources or traditions,” says Dell. “Each culture’s creative space for living and spiritual reflection often has its own unique stamp of style that through design and mindfulness, transcends time. I’ve tried to capture the uniqueness and mysticism of some sacred historic sites and both recreate and add my sense of place and artfulness to these gathering places.”

Gates and Portals also features a series of limited edition fine art prints where Dell continues her exploration with local architecture and urban landscape. She says, “the print scenes show layers of time and how we interact between the present and yesterday. I continue to weave fine detail into large settings to show the creativity and intricacy of our living spaces. Like my paintings in this show, I’ve added my sense of place and made these urban spaces reflective and mystical.”

Dell’s work is described as bold, meditative and emotionally charged. She produces large concept works with skillful execution. You’ll find her work exhibited in galleries throughout North America and part of many private and public collections. She’s won numerous awards and, in addition to her painting, she has garnered recognition for set and costume design. Dell lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

At Wall Fiction, we like to say that you can find the rediscovered and untitled.

The word fiction was created late in the 14th century as “something invented.” It was derived from the Latin words fictio – a fashioning – and fingere – something to form out of clay. To us, art is fiction – something created by an artist’s hand and imagination, and of the lives of the people who acquired it. Hence our name: Wall Fiction.

We make every attempt to investigate provenance as well as the interesting stories each piece come to us with – be it a story about the artist, the subject matter or how Wall Fiction came to it. But the fiction is just the fun. We take art seriously and the information and market value we gather on each piece is as accurate as we can find. We are art professionals who bring you the experience and training expected in dealing with fine art.
