Laura E. Kennedy is an emerging artist based in Hobart, Tasmania (Australia) and a graduate of Sydney College of the Arts. Kennedy’s work combines realistic colored pencil drawings and a conceptual agenda that seeks to challenge and subvert the associated expectations with the status and presentation of her illustrative medium.
Rather than aspiring for photo-realism, Kennedy is driven by a desire to produce exquisite surfaces and mark making to draw the viewer closer to inspect and savour her drawings. Her more recent works challenge the customary boundaries and conceptual potential of the picture frame and other conventional standards of wall mounted, 2D presentation.
