Laura Thomas is a Melbourne based artist whose vibrant work focuses on still life compositions and explores her position as a consumerist. She is originally from the UK where she studied fine art at University, writing her thesis on art and mass consumerism. Through her expressive language of colour, subject and detail of negative space she playfully confronts her relationship with “things” that often provide a momentary thrill of aesthetic pleasure.

Laura’s work pushes the boundaries of conventional still life. Taking inspiration from artists such as Matisse, Cézanne and Kandinsky, her paintings celebrate everyday objects with their intense colour and examination of space and form.
