> DESCRIPTION


The paintings for the exhibition, “Shimmer,” were created over the past several years, each stripe and dot meticulously rendered by hand in multiple layers of paint on panel. Due to the juxtaposition of minute changes in hue and value over the painted surfaces, the picture planes appear to vibrate. Waverings, absences, and misalignments in the mark-making contribute to an optical effect, while the simple, iconic, and symmetrical compositions retain a sense of stillness. These paintings are a continuation of Laura Paulini's decade long exploration of the tension between movement and stillness, growth and decay, harmony and chaos.
