Laura Radwell

Landscapes alternately inspire us and take our breath away. When Laura Radwell first began to paint over twenty-five years ago, she was drawn to landscape's convergences of color, form, light, and shape. At that point, she was more of a representational painter, painting, as it were, "from the outside in." She was trying to capture, or rather, to acknowledge and celebrate, aesthetic dimensions with which nature presents us. After a long hiatus, Radwell recently returned to her brushes and oils to paint landscapes. She has found there a creative vein and energy unlike any experienced before. Now she paints landscapes "from the inside out." The paintings are more abstract and expressionist, with a life that comes from within.
