Greta Laundy is a mixed media artist who enjoys exploring the natural world around her. Greta’s richly layered paintings and drawings are alive with colour, line and pattern, and bring to life her vision where nature is appreciated in all its vibrancy.
“My art practice centres on my experiences and responses to nature. Painting and drawing is a meditative, alchemic and transformative space for me, in which the creative process is a fine balance between intuition and contemplation. Colour, line and shape are very important elements in my artworks, working together to tell a story and take me and you, the viewer, on a journey. I strongly draw on colour theory and modernist principles in the creation of my artworks. I am interested in the processes of nature and the need to protect our environment.Increasingly, I have become more formal and abstract in my focus on landscape, searching for the purity of only the most meaningful and essential motifs: the sun, the moon and the rolling, interlocking shapes of hills. From these elements, transformation occurs as animal and plant shapes emerge, signifying our interconnectedness. My work has been exhibited frequently in group and solo shows, and has consistently been collected.”
Greta holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Hons) and a Master of Teaching (Visual Arts) and her work has widely been exhibited and collected throughout Australia. She welcomes commissions.
