New Artist – Laurence Payot

artcarproject-Virginia-230.jpgYou may have seen Laurence Payot‘s latest artworks parked outside Arena Gallery during this year’s Biennial. She had painted some lovely designs onto a few cars and vans like the one pictured here.

She also does more traditional paintings and photography as well as being involved in various community art projects.

Laurence says
“My practice finds its place at the edge of kitsch – falsely naïve, with a hint of irony.

Using labour-intensive craft techniques I play with strong anonymous generic images and ubiquitous items that are designed to seduce.

Frequently this draws me to cultural forms that exists beyond conventional validations of quality and good taste.”

She has her own website:
