Artist of the Month
Laura WarburtonToronto, Canada
Laura Warburton ia a Toronto, Canada born and raised artist who creates art through the use of colour, texture and imagination. Painting on large scale canvas with abstract expression is where she has found her most satisfying experiences in art thus far. For Laura, a composition is merely a vague idea, not fully envisioned, until the piece itself emerges with the artist's assistance. Laura's formal education is in the hard sciences with some more liberal arts psychology as well.
TAL: How and when did you start creating art?
LW : I was always been interested I and keenly involved in photography. I had the dark room when I was younger. However ,I needed to take a few years away from art when the confines of a young family and full time working career took over.
TAL: What media and genres do you work in?
LW : Acrylics of all types, liquid, heavy body, lots of mediums including gels, pastes, moulds, As I mentioned generally larger scale canvas is my direction.
TAL: Who or what are your influences?
LW : I am not truly certain I can tell you of a specific influence as a person per say.. I enjoy the process of creating, , perhaps portions of my formal education in psychology might have some influence on the the overall feel of my work.
TAL: What was your inspiration for ""?
LW : It's not about what you look at… It’s about what you see
TAL: Describe your creative process.
LW : Set up a canvas
TAL: What are you working on currently?
LW : Currently I have been drawn to human forms, which is very different for me as an abstractionist. Movement, flow, connections of anatomy, portions of anatomy, all with a very loose line and border.
TAL: What are your near/long term goals as an artist?
LW : Short term goals include continuing in the vein of exploring my own artistic side, what works for me, how do I feel about the process, what do I feel in the process, learning by trial and error or trial and success different mediums .I suppose you could term this “personal expression”. Longer term goals I would love to have more time to do the above, perhaps one day continue this as a full time venture
TAL: Where can people view/purchase your work?
