SouthwestArt "The Human Experience"

Peace at Mt Evans, Artist Lorri AcottWhen Colorado sculptor Lorri Acott-Fowler heard that she had been awarded a commission for a public art piece, she had tears in her eyes. It was her first major public art commission. But what mattered even more was that the piece would be installed on the grounds of Mt. Evans Hospice in Evergreen, CO....

PEACE was installed last October. Since then Acott-Fowler has been hard at work in her Fort Collins studio in preparation for six upcoming shows. As her collectors know, some of the elements in PEACE appear frequently in her works both old and new—elements such as outstretched arms, figures looking skyward, and long, lanky legs. In fact, some observers have compared her pieces to the elongated figurative works of famed Swiss sculptor Alberto Giacometti.

Over the years, her work has evolved from realistic to more abstracted pieces, but she has always remained inspired by human relationships, interactions, and emotions. Her pieces express everything from hope, as in PEACE, to vulnerability, as in works like NAKED.
