Collection: Laura Heaney

Artist Statement

Nautical art has been a long established motif, which for many was used to convey the beauty of their surroundings or the dramatic hardships of a maritime life. In Laura Heaney’s current series, she attempts to accentuate the abstract upheaval often felt during transit and nods to the resilience and strength of those who persevere and dream. To help ground these gestural paintings she adds detailed illustrations of ships from both historical and fictional seafaring tales.
