Discover my world
Laura Rogeau is undoubtedly a young artist whose sensitivity will not leave anyone indifferent. Born in Paris in 1995, she grew up in Spain and attended a Franco-Spanish school. But the school benches were too narrow for Laura, who struggled to find her place in a school system unsuited to great sensibilities like hers. She therefore prefers to leave her schooling behind, to quickly plunge into a world that fully resources her: Art! Because if the school has difficulty in dealing with “out of the box” profiles, the artistic world welcomes them fully. Laura first began to express her artistic sense through dance. From the age of six, she took classes and gradually moved towards Modern Jazz and Oriental Dance. A field of expression that she continues to practice assiduously.
It was in 2018, a few years after our first meeting, that I proposed to Laura to take painting lessons with me. She seemed to be attracted to painting and her heightened sensitivity told me that she most certainly had an encounter to make with colours.
I remember her questioning, slightly doubtful look during our first discussion on painting. Laura analyses by intuition, quickly, without filter, like a small animal that knows instinctively what is good or not for it. She quickly accepted my proposal with pure enthusiasm. I was very quickly marked by her innate sense for colours, and her way of plunging into abstraction with the evidence of talent.
Laura paints the movement of the world, its contradictions, the human links, the roots dear to each being, the traumas. Each time she injects a part of light, which comes to soothe her conflicts. Her paintings have the raw energy of primitive instinct: that of the creative act of the caves, that of our profound humanity. She progressively caresses very sophisticated colour nuances and the use of materials becomes more and more subtle. Earth, sand, structural gels, paint amalgams are all materials that allow Laura to express her universe and all her sensitivity.
She is attached to the authenticity of her work, she paints in connection with the present moment, that special moment when the mind no longer dominates our thoughts, that magical moment when the creative act transcends reality to leave room for the heart, because that is how Laura paints: with the heart. Her deeply poetic work plunges us into universes where fragility and strength, gentleness and anger constantly coexist, as if she were staging contradictory feelings to magnify them in the light.
Remember this name well: Laura Rogeau has not finished marvelling us!
