Laura Von Rosk

These small-scale paintings stem from my love of miniaturization, illusion of space, and observation of natural phenomena. They are constructed by mixing elements of landscape and natural forms with memory and imagination. Forms are repeated, emphasized, and manipulated to create tension between the imagined and the real world. They may depict an experience of a specific place or situation, and / or be a response to other artworks by other people.

Through metaphor, expressive shape, color, and light, I hope to create images that give visual form to physical forces, as well as psychological states of mind, in an expansive landscape in a small format.
