An example of fine art by Laura Kmetz

My work is informed by transience within nature, and the intricacy of its forms.  The complexity of a single petal reveals endless possibilities, beyond my power to imagine.  Layered, nuanced mixed media works on distressed and repaired surfaces reflect the embedded beauty of things fragile, crushed or discarded.
Mixed media drawings on unbound pages become a visual journal of discoveries.  Transitions inherent to nature inspire active materials exploration, offering tactile interpretations of organic objects in motion.  My work is infused with color and line, preserving the path of its creation.  Collected fragments offer further associations with displacement, loss, search, recovery and preservation.
I create to express my experience of the world as a mysterious, delicate and beautiful place.  Through art I find access to what is good in life.
