Laura Bidwa’s work has been in numerous commercial and nonprofit gallery exhibitions, as well as art fairs in New York, Miami, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. It is part of more than 50 private, corporate, and public collections in the United States and Europe.
“I use color and touch to express what it feels like to look at things and love them but not know what they are,” says Laura. “Painting seems perfect to me for this. It is so dumbly physical and yet metaphorical (is that a smear of blue or a sky?), and I believe in the made-by-hand and passed-person-to-person side of it. I work relatively small, because I want the painting to be an object there beside you, with you, rather than looming over you.
Laura’s piece “The Favorite” will be featured in Art for Life on September 15. See more of Laura’s artwork at http://www.hammondharkins.com/.
