Laura Findlay explores the tension between loss and creation throughout the natural and supernatural. Her recent projects consider the history of western private property, and the role visual culture can play in responding to anthropogenic climate change. Working primarily through gestural representational painting, she draws reference from imaging technology like flash photography, webcams, trailcams, and motion traps to consider the intricacies of the contemporary relationship to nature. She compresses massive sublime natural forces to the confines of a canvas, while exposing and enlarging the quiet and mysterious world of nocturnal bodies.
