Laura-Anne Fung’s paintings are combustion of bold colors and shapes that dare the onlooker’s gaze. On her canvases, fiery oranges and crimson hues are juxtaposed with peaceful blues and emerald greens. The kaleidoscopic arrays of colors explode in a frenzy onto darkened backdrops. Figures, flowers and faces melt into pools of grey and black splashed with white like the foam on the crest of waves.
Laura-Anne says that her inspirations come from her interactions and observations with commonplace happenings or things. A flower, spotted in passing, bursts in to a color which then transforms itself into a swirl or slash. Such images for Laura-Anne feed the creative urges within her; and consequently propel her to compose the symphonies that are her paintings.
Laura-Anne was born in 1992 in Kingston, Jamaica. The bright colors, as well as the chaos and spontaneity that characterize life in her Caribbean homeland, are reflected in the vibrancy of her paintings. Laura-Anne mostly paints in abstract forms. Representational painting has had little interest for her. From she was a mere 6 years old she has wanted to express the images that bombard her mind in splashes of color, strokes and symbols.
