  • Laura Rose | Contemporary Artist: Artworks & Biography
Laura Rose
To me painting is a way to stay in touch with my roots, my senses and my sensitivity for nature.
Laure began painting at the age of 11. In the evening after classes, she lived in the fine arts room of her school where her teacher gave her own space for working. Upon inquiry she joined the studio of an artist who would become her master and who would teach her all his techniques: drawing, oil, watercolour, pastel, acrylic... She joined the Fine Arts School of Macon where she studied from live models. Laure paints nature in situ (outside). She sets her easel up around different country villages, travelling around the southern regions of France (Drôme, Alpes, Bouches-du-Rhône, Var) to find a subject: the rare gem that resonates deep within her being. Laure paints life and its transformations. She is humble and accepts to observe nature at its most simple in order to locate the exceptional. Her paintings are seductive, delicate, at times magical or even strange, fiendish or unusual.
By painting on site, Laure becomes immersed in the subject and the lifestyle of the people that she observes. Everything inspires her: the light, warmth, noise, and odours that evolve throughout the day. She tries to restore their very essence. Simple things dazzle: a worn door, a vine on a rusted iron stake, a field… These paintings are as if she is zooming in on parts of the landscape. Laure also likes to paint nudes and portraits to play with the nuanced colours of skin and the languid shapes of bodies. Laure uses mainly oil paints. She first creates the background with a brush and then structures the shadows and light with a knife. The same themes also inspire her works in watercolour.
