"Lora Fosberg’s prints encapsulate words—remnants of particular moments, isolated phrases, or names—infusing them with metaphors, puns, references to nature, and human interaction. Text becomes image; word bubbles multiply, play amongst each other, and morph into a celestial formation while creating parallels and opposition. Her work incorporates handwritten words and an earthy color pallet, which serves as a reference to the natural and autobiographical."

– Andrea Green, Director, Visiting Artists Program, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
