Laura Farrell
Artist Statement
Creativity runs through my veins, it has since I was a child. It has before I was a child, likely before I was created. We are infact all made up of the same materials, stardust. Through my art I am ever searching for ways to reveal truths about our lives, things that exist but we can not see or do not recognize. Painting for me is pensive and meditative and my work reflects that. Our lives have become so hectic we often cannot slow down to appreciate the awesomeness of the world we live in. The materials (gold leaf, mica flakes, natural clay) reflect the earth and the cosmos. I explore physics and universal equations and turn them into something we can visualize. There is a connection between all of us, between everything in our universe and beyond. We are connected to something greater and if my work can produce even the smallest amount of wonder or curiosity I have done my job.
