About The Artwork

This 30 x 40 cm (11.8 x 15.7 in.) painting was made just after I completed the larger (60 x 60 cm/23.6 x 23.6 in.) painting, “Berry Passage.” “Berry Passage” depicts abundant and colourful autumnal foliage that frames a little path through the forest. I loved painting the small red berries on the branches and wanted to continue to explore the interaction between branches, leaves, and berries in my next painting. “Through the Branches” depicts a detail of this same passage and zooms in on the foliage, with little peaks of the blue sky behind. While painting, I realized that forms and colours from other paintings in my Forest Series were working their way into “Through the Branches” (see my blog post on themes for more on this). “Through the Branches” will lend a pop of colour to any space with a close-up view of nature. This painting comes in a contemporary, white-painted wooden floating frame including a wire for hanging secured on the back.

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.
