Laura Hapka

My Color/Texture Series and Money-Chrome Series are made from shredded acrylic paint. As designed, the composition of these paintings is uncomplicated but the work conveys complexity through its sculptural aspect and unique, time consuming, process. The Color/Texture Series is purely acrylic on wood panel. With this series, the manipulation of color/tone, the texture and the scale allows me to provoke an emotional response. The Money-Chrome Series is acrylic mixed with shredded United States currency on wood panel. With this series, I explore the monetization of my artwork and the contradiction between the cost of creating art and the perceived value of art.
