Laura Garcia Martin Manchester

I am a versatile visual artist who has been trained in Animation and illustration, photography and film and have an extensive body of work as a painter.

I conceive painting as a tool to communicate in the most intuitive way. I make art to channel diverse aspects of everyday life. My work explores the different environments in which I am immersed: social groups, the family home and my place of work. I strive to express how the place, in this case Manchester, has affected and shaped my sense of identity and belonging. I explore the world as I know it through personal experience, and my work allows me to reflect on who I am, what I do and other aspects that shape my identity. I paint from the perspective of the outsider, and in exhibiting my work I feel art to be my first language and mother tongue.

Although I like to experiment with other techniques, my preferred medium is oil /acrylic on paper, canvas or board. This allows me to fight against the canvas, destroying and building layers or literally erasing, cutting the whole piece down in order to create something completely different until the definitive idea emerges.
