North Gate Vineyard: Laura Edwards Artist Reception
December 6, 2015 4:00 pm
North Gate Vineyard
Laura will be hosting a public reception showing her work entitled ‘Atmospheric Abstraction’ at North Gate Vineyard on Sunday December 6th, from 4PM to 6PM. Her show features oil paintings on a variety of materials; canvas, panels, and a paper produced from recycled polypropylene pellets. Laura works “wet on wet” producing seamless fields of color within the format. Areas of the composition are then drawn back with Prismacolor pencil.
A native of Virginia, Laura Edwards trained as a painter at The University of North Carolina in Ashville, the art rich area of western North Carolina. She draws her creative experiences from working not only as a painter but also as a printmaker. She currently resides in Purcellville, Virginia and works from her studio at The Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria.
Laura describes her paintings as color driven atmospheric abstractions. “All of my paintings are intuitive; having no concrete reference, but they evoke a familiar image,” states Laura. “There seems to be a realistic image coming from the abstract painting; a painting within the painting. The paintings create an illusion; the painting you see and the one you imagine.”
