Laura Hathaway b. 1988, Birmingham UK. Laura is a contemporary British painter working from her studio on the Isle of Wight. Laura's artistic expression is a tactile and immersive process. Painting directly onto glass and paper surfaces with her hands and finger tips, the physicality of pressing, smearing and throwing thick globules of paint onto glass and paper surfaces captures feelings and movements. Laura incorporates music as an emotive trigger, allowing her to create marks and shapes that resonate with the intensity and intimacy of her own emotional experiences. The resulting works are a vivid and messy testament to her emotional journey, characterised by a visceral engagement with paint and an evolving dialogue of marks that form her unique visual language.
