About the Book
PORTRAIT OF AN ARTISTE
Spotlighting the human figure and the method of chiaroscuro through the contrast of light and shadow, the acrylic and mixed media compositions of Laura Kuhn use a rich and vivid palette to emphasize the poetry of painting.
By the bristle of a brush, Laura tells wordless stories through intermixed ideals of Classicism in perfection of form and harmony and the characteristics of Modernism in organic expressions of fantasy and interpretation.
After creating this assimilation of "old ideals" meets "new innovation," her art tantalizes, using the timeless empathy of the nude. In the paint-stained hands of this artiste, the imperfect and fragile human body gains immortality and near perfection, transcending its mere physicality into a classical epitome of a modern movement.
Although each piece is exceptional and unique, the rich complexion and well-blended brushstrokes are recognizable as Laura's bohemian compositions. There is no limit to her art; she is always searching for new materials, exotic subjects, and eye-catching compositions.
