Loree Ovens’ work is influenced by intersecting and overlapping patterns, both in a linear and abstract sense. The actual path of our daily routine interacts with others and our environment as though our footprints create sheet music or are part of a dance.

“Tension and vibrations are formed between lines and objects producing surface energy, where everything is temporal. Architecture forms a sense of language that is deeply embedded into our experience of place and collective memory. Spaces, both real and imagined, create memory maps that link the experiences of our lives together.”- Loree Ovens
