Artist Statement

The discerning artist must ask herself—What is art, and why is it important? While the answers to these questions may initially appear subjective, when I step outside myself, the elusive, yet universal truth is revealed. For a time, I am both the artist and the viewer. See my focused eyes, my brush tipped with paint. Each stroke is a moment captured in time, each color a reflection of my mood, the finished work a fragment of my essence skillfully rendered upon the canvas, and at last, and forever, the human condition is immortalized anew.

Artist Bio

Laura Ficarra was born and raised in New York by Italian immigrants. Early in life she was exposed to art and culture both in New York and Italy. She always admired the masters and still looks at their work with awe and inspiration.

Although, she has been exploring all genres and mediums, her true passion lies within her abstract acrylic paintings.

Her favorite artists include but are not limited to Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman.

When asked what painting means to her, she responded:
“Painting is
an expression of the soul, poetry with paint,
Textured music, floating notes, rhythmic strokes, Creations from within,
Exploration of color wrapped within creative construction of collages combined with medium and paint.
Creations from within varying according to emotions, an expression of the soul.”
