Laura Gunn's paintings reflect the tension between traditional and contemporary, natural and synthetic, growth and decay. The foundation of each painting reflects the beauty of deterioration, inspired by such things as rotting plaster or rusting metal. Over this she lays a living botanical, creating contrast and balance. Painting flowers is a wonderful vehicle for experimenting with color, texture, and form. Gunn plays with color and shape to create the composition she desires. Every painting involves experimentation and discovery, and each is an enlivening experience for her. Through her paintings, Laura Gunn hopes to share these experiences with you.
