Lori Ellison's new work

Here are a few of Lori Ellison's dense pattern filled paintings.  She writes about her work
To work with humility, one must acquire some of the practical virtues artists need: diligence, temperance, modesty, bravery, ardor, devotion and economy....Proportion based on the lyric, not the epic - that is where the juice lives. Stirred, not shaken. Duchamp once said that art is the electricity that goes between the metal pole of the work of art and the viewer, and I don't need shock treatment. Art that is the size and resonance of a haiku, quiet and solid as the ground beneath one's feet....A discreet art, valiantly purified of the whole hotchpotch of artist's tricks and tics...That, that is what I am looking for.
