Flux Exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery
2nd-6th November 2016
It was in September 2016 that I was confirmed that I had been accepted to exhibit at the third Flux exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery, London on 2nd-6th November 2016; therefore, I felt that I should integrate my new painting direction.
See the following link to The Palette Pages artist interview about my background, training an future goals as an artist:
For Flux exhibition I created a combination of paintings and metal clay designs, influenced by texture and wave formations. The first painting I created was an unplanned piece, using both matt, gloss and metallic paint along side textural natural sand.
The central painting in the suite of artworks piece is titled ‘Counterpoint‘:
The title includes two opposing or contrasting elements; with the influence of texture from wood (the earth) and the formation or designs seen in waves (water).
I added a new medium to my work called gilding foil, allowing a hint of shine at different angels which adheres in a random manner to textural surfaces. This foil really shines at different angels and even in low lighting, adding a somewhat unexpected effect to the final piece.
While I created the larger piece ‘Counterpoint’ (shown above), I tested out a variety of mediums on smaller canvases, each of which differ from the larger main painting. The 10 studies explore the concept of counterpoints through a variety of colour, texture and techniques.
My Flux Biography:
“Laura Elliott’s work reflects her desire to be constantly challenging and developing her work within her chosen two mediums: painting and metal clay sculpture. Each artwork is inspired by landscapes, yet influenced by her thought processes, emotions and mood at the time of creation, allowing a fluidity of ideas and a freedom of exploration within her work.
Flux exhibition will be displaying her newest body of work with the title of ‘Counterpoint’ displaying both abstract painting and metal clay sculpture. This body of work expresses the concept of two opposing or contrasting elements; with the influence of texture from wood (the earth) and the formation or designs seen in waves (water) as the common thread. The somewhat dissimilar mediums of painting and metal clay are brought together through the exploration of wood texture and the contours of waves, unifying the opposing elements of earth and water.”
