Laura Harris

“Little joy, a little sorrow and always the relentless flow of positive and negative energy. Working from molded under-painting that is felt rather than thought, she makes texture the architecture of her responsive oeuvre, which compels the hand and the eye, revealing that touching is a multi-sensory experience, engaging flesh and spirit.” -Linda Rogers

With a long list of successful exhibits that span 20 years and collectors worldwide, Laura’s paintings are described as beautifully imperfect. Often large in scale with strikingly bold colours and texture, each piece offers discovery. Her process is rooted in memory and imagination, and her emotions are palpable. When she’s at work, Harris becomes utterly engrossed in her practice. It’s a fully physical task with music turned up loud and paint flying. Laura applies the same love and abandon to all other areas of her life.

Harris’ is a positive oeuvre, but there are contrasts in texture and hue that suggest the opposition of forces. Exuberant, sensual, and often surprising, Laura’s images are known and prized for their irresistible energy. Her relationship with light has been compared to that of Turner.

Laura currently lives in Victoria, BC. Her work is collected globally and exhibited in galleries across Canada. Corporate clients include Mercedes Benz, The Ritz Carlton, The Keg and Canaccord
