"By Directional Intent" was revisited by Laura over a period of years, typical of her process and evolving relationship with the images she paints. Many of her large paintings reflect grand, sweeping strokes across the canvas, which are often juxtaposed with other structural elements.
Laura Roebuck's paintings bring her background in psychology into the abstract concepts of her work. Art became both therapeutic for Laura and a way of self-expression during more challenging times of her career, seen in the very gestural nature of her strokes. Painting is a response to both interacting with, and reacting to, the world around her and integrating that relationship with the canvas. Laura's work also reimagines everyday worn-in objects into mixed media art.
