Quartet at the Pond, acrylic on panel, 46 x 40 in.

Laura Thorne

My work explores optical expressions of evocative experiences with form and color, where what appears is shaped by what disappears. My work now and almost always has been inspired by nature’s fleeting dynamics. I have developed a personal vocabulary of proliferating shapes and colors to alternately construct and dissolve forms with translucent layers of paint. Discovering patterns that expand, shatter and evanesce again and again, I seek the next moment of “what would happen if?” Gestures and edges, impulses and rhythms, etch and urge each painting’s evolution towards unforeseen resolutions.
