Laura Pedley is an abstract artist working from her home studio in Manchester. She studied an Embroidery degree at the Manchester Metropolitan University and gradually moved her creative practice to painting. Laura has exhibited her work across the UK, whilst continuing to produce commissions for private clients and creating new self-initiated pieces to explore the boundaries of her practice.
Looking for the tensions between order and chaos, Laura draws inspiration from the transitions between different layers found within the landscape, and the places where human construction intersects with nature.
Creating her atmospheric and peaceful paintings Laura uses acrylic paint to layer rich blues and greens, bleeding into soft pinks and peaches. She seeks to capture the essence of spacious landscapes and seascapes, then works back into the pieces with pen to build contrasting linear forms inspired by man-made structures. By exploring the juxtaposition between these two worlds, and mapping out the layers and rhythms that create beauty in the midst of uncertainty, Laura is aiming to capture the delicate balance holding up the world around us.
