"The space between two extremes" - Exciting youthful art to please you!

During November, Jayes Gallery & Sculpture Gardens is pleased to announce a solo exhibition by an exciting artist. Her large abstract works are of particular interest and online images do not give the texture, form or depth of these fabulous works. So a visit to the gallery to fully appreciate these wonderful paintings firsthand is a must!

Laura Holland is a young artist from Dubbo NSW.  Since beginning painting at age 10, she has been practicing and refining her skills for the past 12 years. Now working on numerous exhibitions per year, Laura is gaining recognition for her diverse range of creativity and skill. Ranging from photo-realism in pencil and oils, to large scale abstract and mixed media work, Laura recognises there is an audience for both styles of her work.

"I love watching people view my work, whether they are taken by the intensity of my large works, or intrigued by the detail in my drawings, the reactions are always different."  
Laura studied art throughout high school, and achieved great success in her HSC with her major work being selected for Art Express. Since then, Laura has continued to experiment with mediums and push the boundaries of paint, achieving dramatic results. The result of these pieces was 'Space', Laura's first solo exhibition in May 2011.

Alongside teaching both adult's and children's classes, Laura is continually working on her own practice, and currently developing her next body of work.

‘The Space Between Two Extremes’, is a show about the merging of two styles of Laura’s work. An experiment of combining the structure of traditional oils and realism with the fluidity of her large scale ink and mixed media works. An explosion of colour and a vivid dance between mediums on a canvas dance floor.

Opening on Saturday 24 November at 2 pm - all welcome!
