VIEW IN MY ROOM
My fascination with twisting tree branches has evolved to a particular focus on low-to-the-ground intertwining tree branches and tree trunks. This painting is the third that focuses on what I am calling “sculptural trees”. The large branches in the foreground sweep the eye from left to right, with one of the main trees touching both sides of the canvas along its length. In this work, I explored combining a softer painterly technique of blending colours impressionistically with a bolder technique of colour blocking, wherein solid colours create hard edges. “Horizontal Sculptural Trees” (90 x 70 cm/35.4 x 27.5 in.), part of my Forest Series, is outfitted with a thin metal wire held in place with two eyehook screws, making for easy hanging on your wall. A certificate of authenticity (COA) is included with the purchase of this painting.

Laura K. Smith (1989) is a Canadian-born landscape painter based near Antwerp, Belgium. From a young age, Laura drew and painted with her grandfather (‘Opa’) and was inspired by the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art movements she learned about in school. In Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Belgium, Laura studied Studio Fine Arts, Art History, and Art Theory, and earned a Ph.D. in Literature in 2018. Laura has worked in academia and as an art consultant, gallery assistant, and researcher, for internationally renowned art institutions including the Victoria and Albert Museum and Colnaghi, the first commercial art gallery in the world. She is now pursuing her own painting practice professionally. Peaceful, joyful, strong, colourful, dream-like, and haunting are some of the ways in which Laura’s paintings have been described. Using acrylic on canvas, Laura paints colourful landscape scenes of her home country of Canada and her new home country of Belgium with the aim of sharing the joy that she experiences in the practice and appreciation of art. More recently, Laura has started working in watercolour. Complementary to her painting practice, Laura writes about her process and inspiration in her blog, available on her website.
