Practical Joy by Mary Laube

January 08, 2012

Mary Laube is a painter based in Iowa City. Her most recent series of paintings from this past year titled "Practical Joy" exhibits flat and geometric interior spaces. The barren domestic scenes are composed of vibrant hues and illusionistic perspectives that exhibit a distinct tension between flatness and depth. The subtleties of the works reveal themselves in the careful attention to color and line that unveil naturalistic observation interpreted within a illusionistic style.
