Laura Harris Solo Exhibition

She's a Rock & Waterfall

Historically, the framing of a painting is thought to be integral to the work. Some artists even describe a frame as “the most important part of a picture.” Not me. I have always been delighted by the texture and the tellings of the unframed and unfinished edge. Catching a glimpse of a piece unframed, unstretched with the edges unpainted excites me. There is a certain intimacy about it with all the drips, the gobs and the threads that gather at the edge; you can see the under layers. The edges tell a story, revealing an artist’s process and happenstance. You can almost sense how an artist felt at the moment they came to the edge.

I wanted to honour my fascination with edges in this collection. Even though the styles may be familiar – florals and abstract landscapes – the pieces in this exhibit have a new honesty and rawness to them. The paintings are built up with layers of cotton, linen, torn paper and canvas, and most of the pieces have a ‘rough edge’ effect to them. 

Artist Reception: Saturday, February 9th, 2019

Laura’s emotive, abstract landscapes are beautifully imperfect. We invite you once more to contemplate her striking collection featuring powerful new work for her annual solo show at Adele Campbell Gallery.

This year Laura will be collaborating with the musician Will Ross, as he performs Laura will paint to his music, creating a one of kind live painting demonstration not to be missed!

Join us from 5 - 7pm.

All are welcome. Refreshments provided.
