❝ There is something so meditative for me about the act of painting itself. The simple gesture. The physicality and repetition of it. Mark making after mark making. Soft blendings. The viscosity and smell of the oils. It triggers something in me. Shutting out the noise of the day. A necessary part of my life. ❞
I have been somewhat out of commission this last year. Focusing all my available energy on my health journey and my family. I am currently recovering from two craniotomies (within 6 months of each other) and a very heavy round of radiation.
I am so very grateful to be able to say that I am now back and feeling my creativity life force flow through me once again! My guiding and healing light.
I came through these life changing experiences, very much changed, to say the least. And I really am seeing the need to connect again.
I would love to have you over to my studio for a visit! I will have all of my available work on display for you to see in person. It will be so nice to connect again!
Much love and light,
ABOUT LAURA WOOD
I am a painter living in Toronto with my husband and two young daughters. I was born in Ontario, Canada and received my BFA in Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo.
In my work I investigate image and perception, touching on the ambiguity of texts - photographic, painterly or mnemonic, creating an encounter open to the viewer's own interpretation. I use glazing techniques, creating layers which capture a rich glow of light and a depth of colour. I am constantly drawn to light and strive to always be living in it.
My work has been exhibited across Canada and the United States and is included in many International collections.
