Join us in experiencing the creative world of artist Laurie Danial in her afternoon artists talk. Laurie is an active painter and printmaker based in Portland, Oregon for the last 23 years. Her studio practice is informed by themes of the internal and personal while engaging the political events of contemporary culture. Through a highly intuitive process of image creation, abstraction, and figuration, Danial creates evocative, invigorating oil paintings on panel. Her work is firmly focused on the dichotomy of perfection and execution. Whether her ideas spout from archaeology or graffiti, Danial pushes the envelope of representative elements and pure flights of the imagination.
She says of her work, “[it’s] a messy showdown of abstraction, figuration and literal imagery.”
