Patience by Laura Grimes on Staff Art Wall

We are delighted to present a fascinating exhibition by Laura Grimes on our Staff Art Wall for August and September.  Photo - Portrait L. GrimesEntitled Patience, this intriguing show features a series of queues and reflects Laura’s dual fascination with people and colour.  Laura explains “I’m particularly interested in how layering the same colour to varying degrees creates light and shade, a technique which initially worked well for my first paintings which were mainly abstract. My college work at NCAD has pushed me to experiment into other disciplines out of my comfort zone but, left to my own devices, I’m always drawn back to painting people! This series of paintings is a total indulgence of that passion and I hope you’ll enjoy it.”

Waterford born and bred, Laura works in UHW as the Laboratory Administration Manager and has been painting for 15 years.  She has been involved in many diverse art projects including the Incognito Project at the Solomon Gallery in Dublin and the Art With A Heart for Syria campaign.  Recently she returned to formal study at the National College of Art & Design (NCAD) in Dublin where she has just completed her first year in Visual Art Practice.  Her passion lies in portraiture and figurative work and her favourite medium is acrylic.

Patience continues until 21 September.

The Staff Art Wall project is an initiative of Waterford Healing Arts Trust which aims to celebrate the creativity of HSE staff by providing an opportunity to display their work at the hospital.   Further details are available here
