In Laura Aubert’s painting tactility competes with visual effects. The variety of textures and materials gives shape to an exuberant nature that drives us to touch it, to feel the roughness of those floral tapestries.
In her works decorativism does not trivialize but rather constitute the subject matter, thus neutralizing prejudices against pictorial aestheticism. Through incorporating tissues Laura Aubert expands the notion of artistic by introducing elements that did not used to belong to the world of artistic painting. A genuinely feminine sensibility shows through the emphasis placed on tissues.
A single piece of artwork may contain many different processes through which materials and mediums have been constructed in a variety of ways and layering. She applies acrylic paint and textures created with papers and fabrics. Silk paper is also applied to her work to alter its effect and intensify its transparencies and profound colour. Laura's methods also include experimenting using different types of papers, fabrics, embroidery, lace, zippers, feathers and sequins to achieve her desired effect.
Laura’s work is expressed in a deep understanding of value and colour balance, which is captured to depict emotion.
Taking distance from a world in which over-information noise and haste reign, Laura’s artwork gives us a space for reflection and contemplation.
