Laura Fishman’s artistic vision is to connect with the viewer through the language of colour and paint, and to convey her painting experience. With drips and pours, she uses a deeply intuitive approach where opaque and translucent layers are worked until the results produce surfaces that are beautifully textured, sublimely multicoloured and visually engaging. She explores the process of painting itself, where themes of memory and consciousness, time and sense of place are addressed.
For Laura’s ‘Pour Paintings’, she explores how gravity pulls highly viscous paint. The process takes hours to form and days to dry. She uses a bold, playful palette that can trickle off, through or be completely free from the support, adding a playfulness to her work as she questions the notion of painting. Balancing experience along with discovery and chance, tension lies in the controlled gesture. As the colours swirl and mingle, the movement creates designs evocative of the intricate patterns of nature.
