Laura Bofill Studies in Solitude from Spanish artist
Laura Bofill’s elegant solo studies explore the expressive qualities of figurative photography in combination with exquisite costume and adornment. Born in Spain in 1983, she studied at universities in London, Dublin and New York as well as in her home city of Barcelona. Her eclectic approach is a result of many years of varied creative experience; she has been exhibiting her original mixed media work since 2010 in galleries across Europe and North Africa and was selected for the Vila Casas contemporary art prize in Barcelona. Taking a photographic image as her starting point Bofill builds fantastical elements around it and the exotic birds and flowers and ornately patterned backdrops are then enhanced by paints, gold and silver leaf and high gloss resin to give a lustrous finish.
