Primarily interested by colour and shape, Laura Boswell’s work focuses on rural landscape with it’s fascinating light, pattern, seasonality and weather. She finds it the perfect raw material: familiar, local and in a constant state of change.
Her practice encompasses printmaking and the demanding public art techniques of enamelling and cut metal work, which create a tension between the message of her work and delivering it within the restraints of the process. I’m at my happiest when I’m exploring and I try never to get too comfortable either with my images or my technical skills. Teaching and sharing skills are an important part of my work and development; I reap huge benefits from working with all levels of learners as well as collaborating with experts.’
The work evokes a feeling for the familiar and loved, rather than an accurate depiction of a place, perhaps a type of season or day, jogging memories for the viewer of places they have been, weather they have experienced or walks they have taken, depicting space and distance ‘When I see recognition dawn, I know I’m getting it right.’
