Nothing but Joy
Created by Laura Nugent
Acrylic on gallery-wrapped canvas with a matte finish, edges painted. The artist employs a buoyant color palette and loose idea of pattern to inspire her initial composition. Her shapes and use of color connote optimism and love for her medium. Her method of layering paint, with both transparent washes and thick, dripping coats, creates depth and allows for accident. The hand of the artist is apparent in each imperfect line that is painted.
