About the Book
Exhibition catalogue for Afterglow, by artist Laura Madera. November 20 - December 21, 2014 at Evans Contemporary in Peterborough, ON, Canada. Through her artwork, Madera subjectively investigates light and memory in relation to painting. Her work initiates with a question, and what follows is the result of negotiating, probing, and conversing within a process of making. For Madera this unpredictable shifting process of understanding can only be arrived at through a physical engagement with materials. The outcome she works towards, is a quality of openness in meaning - a painting that refracts thoughts to other moments. Includes a text by artist and writer, Martin Pearce.
