"It Ended with a Moth" explores many layers of meaning, created over a period of 4 years.
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.
“Laura Roebuck has distilled a lifetime of creative observation and psychological exploration into an artistic language that conveys a unique sense of movement, texture, and color. Her paintings are a passageway to our inner thoughts that awaken our imagination. Laura's paintings embody a rich history of experiences: from hospitals, lecture halls, and dance studios to villages in Asia and a rural Mexican clinic while also drawing on a bi-coastal relationship to the towns and beaches of New England and California. The layered surfaces of her paintings reveal her exploratory process and fascination with color, balance, and the psyche.” ~ Susan Braham Koletsky / Museum Director
