Laura Ross-Paul focuses on figures and the natural world. She uses the human form to express the workings of the soul and mind, while nature embodies the complexities of creation. Elements of nature are often employed to assist a symbolic read; sparkling water beckoning a spiritual immersion, an arching branch offering a protective cover. She has developed many painting techniques unique to her work. The trickiest process is a combination of wax and resin to float wet paint, creating an effect of luminosity.
