Laura Kirkpatrick

An alumni of Swindon Art College and graduate from Lancaster University (BA Hons in Visual Arts), I am a Wiltshire based artist and mother of three. My artistic interest lies in exploring the space between the ‘Figurative’ and ‘Abstract’ and I find inspiration in nature and my surroundings. I primarily work in oils though often use watercolours or charcoal to create small pieces that I then use as collage elements in my paintings. I use these figurative instances for the same reason that I often like to give my works titles where possible - I’m interested in how they provide an invitation for the viewer and suggest a starting point for exploring the painting.


My paintings are journeys. They are the result of a process of finding and exploring a balance from sometimes disparate elements and visual tensions. I ultimately want to find an aesthetic unity but do a lot of experimenting along the way. The paintings are the embodiment of this experimentation and discovery and there are moments of triumph within them.
