Artist Spotlight: Laura Findlay

Toronto-based artist Laura Findlay’s recent paintings explore the nocturnal natural world and the intricacies of our modern relationship to nature. Using images sourced from webcams, trailcams, camera traps, and nighttime flashes, she exposes what she describes as “a hidden natural world existing beside or below human consciousness.” She brings these images together into her oil paintings, wondering: “what is lost in the process of recording subjects undergoing cycles of growth and decay?” Working with a process of additive and subtractive mark-making, her practice mirrors her interest in “the tension in the generative and destructive cycles of nature.”
