Ora Sorensen
North Carolina

Sorensen describes her work as “exaggerated realism”, where the colors, scale, contrast and lighting are pushed just beyond reality. Her popular still lifes evoke the beauty of nature, and then heighten it with vibrant colors, brilliant light and dancing shadows.  Their sensuality draws you in, making the viewer want to breathe in the sweet aroma of the luminous flowers or bite into a luscious pear.  Ora’s laborious method of oil painting uses many layers of thin transparent oil paint to give a deep jewel like glow to the surfaces of the painting’s subject matter.
