About A Force of Nature
Cosmological and topographical worlds are created by the layered accumulation of pours, stains and diverse markmaking techniques. Harmonious opposites within the work include growth and decay, ecstasy and havoc, construction and deconstruction as well as chaos and control. Sources of motivation are drawn from the cosmos, geology, anatomy, phenomena (scientific, optical, geological, meteorological and oceanographic), chemistry, gravity and chance. The results are both violent and destructive, yet delicate and beautiful. www.laurencoulson.com
