Laura Madera

Laura Madera received her BFA from Emily Carr University, British Columbia and MFA from the University of Guelph, Ontario. Her practice explores the potential of watercolour as a means to subjectively investigate phenomena within a contemporary context. Her work has been exhibited and is held in private collections across Canada, the United States and the UK.  She was named as one of Canada’s most promising emerging painters by the Magenta Foundation.  Laura is a recent recipient of an Emerging Artist Production grant from the Ontario Arts Council.

“I paint in watercolour to poetically explore the natural world. Properties of natural phenomena (water, gravity, light) are part of the making and are valuable creative forces to reckon with – push water out of the way and it pushes right back.”
