Speakeasy Art Gallery
Ms. Harden has been exploring different techniques and modes of expression which have led to 3 new series. Laurie likes to work in series as they prompt her to thoroughly explore a subject and to see where each new work will take her. She has tried to merge aspects of these series in order to continue her exploration. Laurie has always enjoyed painting colorful portraits but has taken this style in a bolder & more dramatic direction.
The impulse to drip paint led to the joy of splattering canvases with acrylic paints and then painting oil portraits on top while trying to integrate the abstraction and colors into the figure. Colors carry meanings, emotions, and moods with them, so it was natural for Laurie to express a variety of emotions through her portraiture.
