Laura Harris, Available Artwork
Laura’s paintings are described as beautifully imperfect, and have the ability to stir powerful emotions, speaking to an inner voice often ignored. Often large in scale with strikingly bold colours and texture, each piece offers discovery. Her process is rooted in memory and imagination, and her emotions are palpable. When she’s at work, Harris becomes utterly engrossed in her practice. It’s a fully physical task with music turned up loud and paint flying. Laura applies the same love and abandon to all other areas of her life. Exuberant, sensual, and often surprising, Laura’s images are known and prized for their irresistible energy.
“I try and create what I ache for. Painting for me is not work, it’s an essential part of living.”
Harris” is a positive oeuvre, but there are contrasts in texture and hue that suggest the opposition of forces. Her relationship with light has been compared to that of Turner. As a young child, the Canadian artist learned drawing techniques from her father, who preferred realism but encouraged freedom of expression. Her work is exhibited in galleries across Canada and collected worldwide. Corporate clients include Mercedes Benz, The Ritz Carlton, The Keg and Conaccord.
