Laura Von Rosk


My paintings may be about a specific place, or a certain experience of a place, or a response to the work of other artists. By using elements of landscape, mixing natural forms with memory, the images become “constructed” landscapes. Forms are repeated, emphasized, manipulated, or invented.  There is a tension between form and what’s going on in the real world, and the form (lakes, ditches, open fields, icebergs, pressure ridges, etc.) isn’t just a product of what I see, but combines what I know about constructing paintings with some deep and as yet unconscious memory system with what I see in the landscape. The paintings are small in scale (average dimensions 12 inches), but my goal is to create an intimate experience of a vast, expansive space.

In the Autumn of 2011 traveled to Antarctica to work with biologist Dr. Sam Bowser and his research team. I was there to assist with the scientific research and dive teams and, in one way or another, incorporate this experience into my own work as a visual artist. Some of my recent paintings stem from those 3 months living in Antarctica.
