Laura Paradisis

Paint Experiment is driven by process, where my fascination with paint as a medium, reveals itself on the canvas. Through the materiality of paint, I want to immerse the audience into an abstract scene that reveals the process of making and the relationship of colour and texture. I explore and experiment with oils to discover new ways of application. For me, applying paint is meditative, there is an element of controlled chance in how the colours and surface forms. I only exert a certain amount of control over the medium and become the tool through which the paint expresses itself.
