About Loretta Fasan

Loretta Fasan is a Canadian artist painting in oils.

Many of her paintings portray women in costumes, sometimes with a trompe l'oeil aspect.
The paintings possess a range of influences, from the soft realism of Victorian art to the moody quality of Baroque paintings.
The figures often have a dreamy or mysterious quality, and are sometimes humorous.
She also paints portraits, still lifes, and more recently, landscapes.
Her paintings have been exhibited in the United States and Canada, and are in private collections throughout the US. and Canada, and Europe.
Her artwork has been featured for several years on PBS television.



Loretta's paintings have been included in a book titled: 'Contemporary Painters' by Schiffer Publishing, which will be available from April 2012 at most large bookstores.


Artist statement:
My painting style and subject matter is evolving. I will describe what I've tried to do so far.
'My goal was to create a sense of richness and impact creating female faces as icons,
while incorporating a strong graphic aspect.

There are many influences, and I work from observation and imagination at the same time.
Sometimes I start out painting from observation, and then my imagination takes over.
I am attracted to pattern, decoration, and flatness, and at the same time, to certain aspects of realism.
I have been working to combine all of this, and recently,
to get the rich colorful elements to also appear somewhat worn, and aged.
There is an element of trompe l'oeil, also. Parts of the figure can appear to flatten,
and the background goes from atmospheric to a texture with folds.
I tend to keep the mood of the paintings positive, even if there is a moody element.
I am inspired by many artists, both past and present.'
