Statement

My work gives form to anxious energy and frenetic mark-making. It captures the feeling of uncertainty in the eleventh hour as well as the helplessness that is experienced when your palms sweat and your stomach ties itself in knots from whatever phobias and nervous habits you internalize. It represents everything inside the mind and body that washes itself away after you exhale your deepest sigh.

Bio

Laura Schuler is a mixed media artist living and working in Los Angeles, California. Her style of art represents an expression of movement and energy that incorporates layers of acrylic paint intersecting with spray paint. 

Laura continuously experiments with colors and shapes that highlight negative space. Her marks capture her highly gestural process of paintings that harness iterative physicality and flow. Her artworks have been collected throughout the United States and internationally.
