About Laura Pentzin

I feel very connected to the entire universe when I am in the process of painting.The energetic feeling of thrill and flow when reaching the state where there is no border between me and the painting. The gateway between the inside and outside world is open.Everything I express is all part of this cosmic, eternal dimension, avoiding egoistic obstacles. My soul is the melting pot where the ingredients of life brew.I pour that essence on the canvas .
As a ballet dancer, I mainly use my body to express myself.These days I find my self being happiest if I paint, dance, write poetry, sing and make costumes etc. without limitations. I use acrylic paint on canvas, but just paint itself is never enough, so I mixed it with sand, seeds, cotton, denim and other fabrics, feathers, leaves, flowers, glitters, plastic etc.
