About the Artist

Lorna Ritz

I am an 'abstract impressionist-expressionist painter, a recurrent cancer survivor whose paintings hang on hospital walls throughout the country, (including Cedars-Sinai). I broke the trees up, broke open the sky and rivers, as though they were windows through which I could fly. This is how I felt when I endured pain. Painting was never a ‘healing-type therapy’ for me, as I am already “a painter."I make new discoveries by indulging curiosities. My reaction to facing the unknown, not recognizing myself in the mirror, and having pain, was to paint as though there was no tomorrow. It was always this attitude by which I lived and painted anyhow. Each of my paintings represents a crystallized chunk of formal experience, while being very personal at the same time.My paintings are earthy, rock-like and weighty, and yet they have in them the rhythm of the sea. I am a nature painter; the nature “out there” coupled with my own internal landscape. My inner finds the equivalent “out there.”
