Laura Demers

Laura Demers’s practice engages both painting and collage.  Her mixed-media works use image fragments to create surrealist landscapes.  Though her compositions are richly layered and brightly coloured, they are not calm pastorals. Rather, Demers’s land constructions play with the imaginary, the fabricated and the intangible.  The spaces in her work aren’t easy, they force us to look.  Just when the eye picks up on a hint of foliage or a grassy knoll, her obliterating gestural abstraction carries us into a new space. Demers’s unstable landscapes speak to a double-edged relationship with land somewhere between reverence and instability.
