Ones to Watch: Laura White


Laura White is an Australian artist known for her realist still life portraits and nature-inspired oil paintings. Drawing inspiration from ceramics and the botanical environment world, Laura uses multiple layering methods and translucent glazes to achieve richness, depth and texture in her work. Compositions are left relatively sparse, never overcrowded, giving subjects enough breathing space to be appreciated for their inherent beauty. Although application is light, there are many hours of effort applied to each work, and the result is often that the viewer feels as if they are standing right there in the artist’s studio, experiencing the same mood, light and stillness.
