Laurie McIntosh's abstract collection "Pages" is a series of eccentric paintings that challenge the idea of how we read. Inspired by her love of making books, "Pages" offers up non-traditional, and more open format. This deconstructed technique is influenced by the desire to see all the pages at once while in a book. The unique creations have a more interactive approach to art with lots of options as to how to interpret each piece.
Her mediums are chosen for each piece based on "whatever solves the problem," whether it be a water-tight medium, something such as wax, or simply oils.. After created, the pieces are then deconstructed and bound back together to add to their unique formation. She also has recently been commissioned by the city of Columbia to do some exciting work involving painting city buses.
For the former graphic designer each series has a very long creative process to go along with it.. This process includes 2-3 years of developing and working on the art, with a minimum of 40-50 pieces in each collection. This really allows the collection to develop a beautiful story, without the same need for words as books have.
