Laura Hapka

I create abstract paintings through the manipulation and layering of acrylic paint. I strive to produce work that stretches the definition of painting using a novel, construction, deconstruction and reconstruction process. My paintings are composed of hand-painted acrylic that is altered once removed from an encaustic surface. The acrylic is then layered, to add dimensionality and increase intrigue, onto the final surface.

My abstract paintings are guided by my unique process and my newest series emphases the part of my process that all my work originated from. My art is motivated by themes of self-awareness, both as an artist and individual, expression or emotions, worldwide interactions with the natural environment and socioeconomic disparity. Each theme represents a force that has impacted my life and makes me who I am.
