Findlay E

Laura Findlay

Laura Findlay (b. 1984 in Montreal, Canada) is an artist based in Toronto, Ontario. She completed an MFA at the University of Guelph (’14) and a BFA at Concordia University (’11). Working primarily in painting, Findlay’s recent projects generate fragmented natural worlds as an arena to collide occasions of metaphysical and ephemeral knowledge. Through an ecology of mark making employing additive and subtractive processes, her paintings ravel generative and destructive events as a site for cultivation.

Findlay has recently shown work with Egret Egress (Toronto), Jarvis Hall Gallery (Calgary), Galerie Division (Montreal), Arsenal Contemporary (Toronto), Forest City Gallery (London, ON), Evans Contemporary (Peterborough, ON), Skylab Gallery (Columbus, OH), and Brucebo Konstnärshemmet (Sweden). Findlay has participated in residencies including the Brucebo (Sweden), the Banff Centre (AB), and the Vermont Studio Center (VT). Her work is collected by the Royal Bank of Canada, Equitable Bank, and numerous other public and private collections across Canada, the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom
