Interior Illusions

Recently I happened upon the most amazing artist who specializes in interior subjects using an oil medium. Her name is Page Laughlin and her stunning work, long list of credentials and experience are a result of her unique and exciting perspective.

A word from the artist: “In the subject matter of my paintings, things are often not quite what they seem: lovely interiors, on closer consideration, lead to disquieting seduction; wallpaper details, luscious statuary, give way to recognition of issues of power and subjugation. I try to make work that has beauty to attract and complexity to sustain observation.”

The imaginative play between reality and the artistry of the material in Page’s work is so enticing…I feel as though I could “live” in her dramatic scenes for hours!
