Spurred by an innate, passion-fueled desire to create works of art, painter Laura Almerico fuses spiraling, exuberant forms with a vivacious, intoxicating palette. Completely self-taught, Almerico relies on her natural, fanciful understanding of color, technique and composition in order to create harmonic geometries of her mind’s own making. Inspired by tales of human triumph over evils or obstacles, Almerico’s fervor to create artwork is rooted within her childhood, when her mother would take her to Europe’s great museums in order to see the paintings of the Masters, and in her days as an art history student. It is the artist's instinctive urge to progress through painting that has most evolved her talents, however, united with her insatiable curiosity about the world and the people in it. Her compositions are reminiscent of Kandinsky and other notable Expressionists in their wide-ranging, sparkling curvilinear forms. Yet these works are inventions unique to the vision of their creator and her lively imagination.
Laura Almerico lives in her native Siena.
