Reality is illusory relative and subjective expression

The knowledge that others have of us is stereotypical, but our identity is fluid, constantly evolving, and our personality is not uniform. Each of us is absolutely alone, unknown even to himself.

Dear Laura,
I love these paintings and your sentences on identity. In my eyes, each person is a universe. If so, that's a lot of job to find identity. Some people seek answers an outside. Others, seek them in an inner world. Methods is not a matter, but an answer should be unique and individual. Paradox. That answer grows and leads to another challenge. But a person who finds her/himself will not be easily stumbled. I hope my poor writing makes sense. Thank you for reading. Take care.
Kind regards, Sadami

much sense what you wrote, and I agree with you, just that it is very difficult to find the balance.

Thank you very much
see you soon

!!!!!!

THAT is my response to what you write on identity! My god, yes!

And so your works of self become all the more important.

The knowing of us each is a network that hums as though it is made of electricity interwoven, never at one point, the truth of it always vibrating and elusive. Wonderful!

Ciao Laura,
It has the feeling of a sculpture, but the more you look at it the more it grasp your innard reveling a world of majesty and mystery that comfort your soul.

Maritza said...

Ahhhhhh...la expresión que logras, siempre me deja impactada.

Bello. Muy bello.

Abrazos, Laura!
Y felicitaciones!

I love how they're built like tiny sculpted lines and they tell quite a story just from seeing them :) Gorgeous as ever!

Laura, tes mots interpellent ! notre éducation nous apprend à être ce que nous sommes et il est parfois difficile de se connaitre soi-même
parce que personne ne nous a appris
à développer notre vraie personnalité. c'est un long travail!
et le bonheur est au bout de cette connaissance ! pardon d'écrire en français, je n'aurais pas su le faire en anglais !
tes peintures si colorées expriment
un travail très personnel ! tu es une artiste Laura et je ne dis pas
cela souvent !
je te souhaite un merveilleux printemps !
bisous

Noi tutti siamo l'intreccio di vari fattori che ci roteano attorno...

Da un lato c'è ciò che davvero siamo dentro di noi...
Da un lato c'è ciò che vogliamo far trasparire di noi...
Da un lato c'è ciò che vorremmo essere o diventare...
Da un lato c'è ciò che di noi colpisce chi ci sta davanti...

Noi siamo tutto questo e nulla di tutto ciò, poiché siamo in continuo cambiamento: proprio per questo non possiamo sapere ciò che davvero siamo...

verissimo, prezioso per me il tuo commento

ADRIAN said...

I love these self portraits. Brave and beautiful. Sometimes almost angry.

Tito said...

Questi volti in primo piano, già così belli e intensi in fotografia, devono essere una meraviglia visti dal vero. Complimenti Laura, anche per i pensieri con cui presenti i tuoi lavori, assolutamente mai banali e sempre meritevoli di una riflessione! Un abbraccio.

Clint said...

I love your portraits, Laura, as well as all your works. But, why would an artist sit down to paint when she is uninspired?

Hugs.

Bob Bushell said...

They are beautiful paintings.

Leovi said...

Beautiful brushwork and gorgeous colors. First enjoy the flexibility of the paint around and then I get up and they enjoy looking at them from several feet away to enjoy the deep expressions and looks of your pictures. Must be a sight to see them live. A hug.

Jean Spitzer said...

Love the texture.

I recognize so many artists in your self-portrait Laura ! Expressive, yes you are.
Love Marina's smile, so little smile, so charming.
It's happiness to look at your paintings.Bises.

Antonio Machado said...

Ciao Laura
Ero in estasi prima di queste due bellissime opere!
Entrambi mi ha fatto desiderare di dipingere qualche foto ...
Questa forza è straordinaria, i colori a volte in armonia ora in contrasto - sensazionale!
Un abbraccio

Two Tigers said...

Laura, these are beautiful portraits - yes it is so true that others can't know us, and we can't know ourselves either, always in a state of change. Maybe that's what art is for, to get at some of the truth that lies behind the reality, to make us see each other with new eyes and minds.

Rodney said...

Very expressive and nice colours! You really express that fuidity of personalities here!

Trevor Lingard said...

Fantastic work Laura.
I love the vibrancy and looseness that you achieve in oils.
Inspiring!
Best Regards

Superbe esplosioni di fascino femminile!

Andrew Finnie said...

Greetings Laura, Oh how juicy is this? You do your artistic lineage proud :) Reminding me of Emile Nolde's seascapes, but cleaner and better controlled.

You have a way with thickness that I admire so much! I make mud with mine!

salutations and hugs.

Off to see what i have missed.
