Laura Garcia Martin
I make art to channel diverse aspects of everyday life . Working at the moment on a series of paintings that explores the different social environments in which I am immersed: drawing and language groups, the primary school playground, and the family home. It is the world I know through personal experience, and this involves reflections on who I am, what I do, and why I am the way I am. I paint from the perspective of the outsider, and in exhibiting my work, feel art to be my first language and mother tongue. I fight against the canvas, destroying and building until the definitive idea emerges.
