Please join Charlene Newsom and Laura Lacambra Shubert to celebrate the opening of her newest exhibition. Come meet this prominent artist, mingle with interesting guests and enjoy some light refreshments.
Wind rustling through the hair of a young boy by the water, the strong yet delicate foot of a ballerina gliding seamlessly into her slipper, sun seeping through a French window to kiss the orchids that adorn someone’s living room— these are just a few examples of how Laura Lacambra Shubert transforms the simplest of subjects into the most romantic of scenes.
Shubert paints with broad strokes, weaving together light and shadow in a way that imbues each of her paintings with a palpable energy. Though loose, each bravura-style brushstroke carries an elegance that enhances seemingly regular subjects with a sense of grace.
A master of subtlety, Shubert layers paint to convey the micro-movements that breathe life into otherwise still environments.
“People often seem curious about the life of an artist- I love it, but also think it’s a bit like asking how I enjoy having brown eyes- It’s simply who I am. Whether I’m actively working on a painting, or not, my mind is always ‘at work’ on something. I would describe as creative. When I take breaks from painting to travel, or to spend the summer with my family, I’m continually engaged creatively and find that I almost always return with new ideas and inspirations.” ~Laura Lacambra Shubert
