Laura Roebuck / Fine Art / Painting / Fertile Soil 10 (Deconstructed)
Laura Roebuck's Fertile Soil 10 is one of the last paintings in the series that seamlessly blends the independence from visual reference in her abstract paintings with the interruption of an abstract ranunculus. The gestural mark coming in at the last moment of effort made, is a poignant crescendo in a concept around "Fertile Soil."
Fertile Soil 9 and 10 are "deconstructed paintings" with excavations revealing parts hidden.
Fertile Soil #7-10 represent the finale of this compelling series.
Laura's pursuit of saturated, intense color works, alternating with studies in neutrals, muted tones and monochromes are created using common household and construction tools, traditional palette knives, paintbrushes and found, broken and collected objects.
