Laura Dargan is originally from Columbia, SC but has called Charleston, SC home for 18 years. Growing up, painting and drawing was very much a part of Laura’s life but it wasn’t until after graduating from College of Charleston that she realized that a career in art was the path for her. Laura currently lives in Mount Pleasant, SC with her husband and dog, Timothy and Hazel.
Laura's work explores the interaction between unexpected color combinations and irregular shapes. Her goal is to create visual energy that is specific to the viewer. By composing designs without any suggestion of representation, the viewer has a chance to connect with the painting in their own way. Laura's work embodies the very idea that art is subjective.
Laura is self-taught and likes to experiment with different techniques and products. Each body of work she creates is an evolution of her process and is influenced by various sources of inspiration.
