“ There is something meditative 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. ”
LET'S CONNECT – IN PERSON !
I have been a bit out of commission this last year. Focusing all my available energy towards my health journey and my family. I am currently recovering from two craniotomies and a very heavy round of radiation.
So so so very grateful to be able to tell you that I am now back and feeling my creativity flow through me once again! My guiding light.
I came through these life changing experiences, well pretty changed, and really seeing the need to really connect again.
I would love to have you over to my studio for a visit! Just send me an email to set up a time. I will have all of my available work on display for you to see in person. It will be so nice to connect again!
In love and light,
ABOUT – LAURA WOOD
I am a painter living in Toronto, Ontario with my husband and two young daughters. I was born in Ontario, Canada and received my BFA at the University of Waterloo.
My work is an investigation into image and perception, touching on the ambiguity of texts - photographic, painterly or mnemonic, creating an encounter open to 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.
