About

Lori Cuisinier was born in Dayton, Ohio and has been a longtime New York City resident.  As the daughter of an Air Force officer, she grew up in Albuquerque NM, Cape Canaveral FL, San Francisco and Los Angeles, CA and Boston, MA.  Cuisinier emigrated to Canada with her family and received a B.A. Honors Visual Arts from the University of Ottawa.  Following her return to the United States, she participated in the Hunter College Master’s Degree program and received her Juris Doctor from The City University of New York at Queens College. While working a full-time “day-job” as an attorney, her art evolved from painting and drawing to include photography and multimedia installation.  She is known for her large-scale imagery where her body serves subject/object/still life.  From the perspective of the female gaze, Cuisinier channels historical and mythological female archetypes while she confronts the viewer’s conceptions and preconceptions of female strength and vulnerability.

Cuisinier’s photographs and installations have been exhibited in New York, Miami, France and Italy.
