Not Enough To Stay Acrylic, Flashe and Gouache on Canvas 48.5" x 60" x 1.5"
Artist Laura Mosquera is known for her irregularly-shaped paintings with shades of bright, energetic color. Bucking tradition, she shapes and molds the canvas like a tool, giving herself the freedom to explore new possibilities.
In Not Enough To Stay, two canvases stick together like magnets. A series of colorful lines run parallel around the edge, only to collapse into chaos at the other end of the frame. Fusing these two objects together, the work seems to reference the nature of all human relationships, the ties that bind and our need for independence and freedom.
