About The Artwork

As I was walking in the dune forests in De Haan in January 2021, I noticed that some of the twisting trees seemed to have lost their bark and were thus a very light cream colour. This light colour and the smoothness of the wood reminded me of the driftwood I have seen along Canadian shores. Various tree branches were leaning into other trees in collapsed poses, tangled and intertwining or, as a friend of mine put it, their entanglement seemed like dancing. I liked the composition of the swirling branches leaning against sturdier trees and the contrast between the light and dark colours. As backdrop, the winter sky was a clear light blue and the foliage on the ground was both dark and soft. I knew this scene would be the next I would paint after finishing my first painting of 2021, “Winter Path”. The painting (60 x 60 cm/23.6 x 23.6 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.

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.
