Laura Gray, born 1995, is an abstract expressionist artist from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She graduated from Ulster University in 2016 with a degree in printed textiles.
Her paintings explore the physical and emotional connection an artist has with contact on canvas - to become lost in the act of painting. Each piece is a representation of her mind at that moment, she does not plan what to paint and instead automatism allows the painting to take on an organic life of its own - turning otherwise incoherent thoughts into something tangible.
The gentle hues within her work are dominated by darker tones, shadows and scoring - weaving recognisable form and structure out of chaos. Gray paints with a range of mediums and tools to create an appearance of fluidity and depth.
