I consider my work to be bold, experimental and progressive. I am passionate about the way colours can influence a person or a location and this excites me. I feel that colour can explore and connote a deep emotional meaning to viewers of my work and this is a central consideration when each piece is created. Art comes alive within people’s minds and I aim to ignite the same excitement within every person who views or buys my work. I have been exploring many aspects within my work, my own world and the world which surrounds me. My university work explores deep concepts, including self, identity and the world around me, with past and present uniting. Much of my work has utilised my multimedia experience and I also enjoy practising art within the media of photography, film, drawing and the written form. I am passionate about the study of contemporary art within. I have practised, within my degree, two speciality areas are Fine Art and Photography to degree level. I am a passionate writer and have developed a deep affinity for theoretical debates and concepts within the art world, often integrating ideas into my practices.
Biography: I, Laura Elliott, am a young contemporary, practising artist and I have been passionate about art my whole life. I am a drawer, painter and photographer, and often use multimedia within my art. My work explores the concepts of emotion, memory, location, self and identity. Using abstract expressionist and impressionistic painting techniques, I create a wide range of work from landscape to figurative. I have gained UK qualifications in Art and Design and am presently studying an Art and Media BA (Hons). Having been creating art for 13 years and a practising for the last 6 years, I primarily paint landscapes and skyscapes for sale; however, I am passionate about exploring nature, the human form and the world around me which inspires my work. I am also passionate about the body and drawing and painting the human form. My past portfolio includes work I have created through life, including artwork for sale and artwork created during my Art degree. Please do not hesitate to e-mail me to purchase an item or ask any questions you may wish to ask at email@example.com. I have been involved with a few exhibitions and my last exhibition was covered and publicised in a local newspaper in 2003. Since then I have been involved with working and studying to gain my Art and Media BA (Hons) and my degree show will be held in 2007. I am a member of a local artist group, called Ambience, a group of like minded artists who support and exhibit as a group. In the future I aim to gain a PGCE to teach in Secondary Schools and to continue to exhibit with ambience and other artists’ circles I join. My academic writing has been published on-line within my site, elliottsweb.co.uk. I have been designing websites since 1998, setting up small fan sites. Eventually, the domain, Elliott’s Web (UK), was formed in 2002 as a method to promote my academic and artistic work in an on-line portfolio. As I studied and created artwork my vision changed for ‘elliottsweb.co.uk’ and I decided to expand its contents. Recently, I felt that my abilities and passions could branch out to begin a small business selling artwork and creating commissioned pieces and in 2006 Elliott’s Web (UK) Art Gallery was formed. Artistic influences are both male and female. However, as a woman I enjoy exploring female contemporary work, such as Maggie Hambling, Sarah Lucas, Tracey Emin, Jenny Saville and other such exciting progressive and challenging art. Their work relates to me in a profound way and this inspires me and spurs me on. I enjoy their confidence, faith, techniques and ideas. Other artists of interest to me are past ‘masters’ including Frida Kahlo, Jackson Pollock and Picasso. My Art and Media degree enables me to interact with fellow skilled students and resident artist lecturers and tutors and this is has been a huge driving force behind my passions.
