TBF ~ July 2017 Recap

Happy Summer!

This summer has been busy in and out of studio. There are both new works and two shows this month.

The first show was at bG Gallery in Bergamot Station, Santa Monica. This was called "The Food Show", which you can check out online. For this one, I created  the fields of quinoa using a variety of natural seeds in the painting, to highlight the need to take care of the earth so that it may continue to sustain us.

The second show, "Nobody Walks in LA", was at PØST Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. It was a kamikaze/one-night group group exhibition of works by 15 LA artists organized by Lawrence Gipe. The show draws from the experience of wandering throughout SoCal’s rich and varied urban landscapes in a “dérive” (which translate loosely to “drifting”), with an artwork being a visual manifestation of the experience.

Laura Atchinson is a contemporary artist based in Los Angeles, California.

“My work is generally inspired by the world around us. In the past I did a lot of work focusing on cultural history and archaeology, but lately I have spent more time looking to nature. In addition to painting, I spend a lot of time outdoors.

My love for nature comes across in my most recent pieces. However, instead of turning to my more traditional art materials, such as watercolors and oils, I am currently using materials that are considered street art. In a way it is a blend of my cultural studies, the city in which I live, and my passion for being in nature.”
