About the Artist

 

b.1994, Rome, GA


Laura Deems is an abstract artist who has quickly been deemed noteworthy, with features in numerous publications before completing university. This early discovery of Laura’s talent recognizes that her work embodies a new interpretation of painting. The freedom and immediacy in her marks, wandering over the canvas only to be abruptly cut off, reveals both the fluidity and the harshness of gestural motion.  The canvas ceases to serve as a window to convey images and ideas, rather it becomes a space invoking the very movements that orchestrated those marks. Her work has a sense of terroir, leading the visualizer to experience the very sights, smells, and motions that inhabit the space with Laura as she creates.


Her inspiration is rooted in her fabric design background, which was developed during her time at the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art as a Fabric Design Major. Laura translates the markings and textures of the textile to her paintings. As a result, her paintings encapsulate the free flow of the patterned textile as they are loosely worn on the body, blending the inviting colors with the lively gestures of the human body.  


Laura lives and works in Charleston, South Carolina.
