The work of Laura Turon explores the process of mark making, which has become the artist’s primary focus. Turon’s processes combine different interpretations of light, design, and large scale compositions, through drawing or ‘mark-making’. Enrolled as an engineering student before participating in an art class that altered Turon’s course in life, the artist’s methodical background is still evident in the clarity and precision of technique in her drawings. Exploring concepts of time, science and anthropology through the power of illustration, Turon the creative process as a central elements to her artistic research and exploration. Turon considers the idea of transferring, even destroying, her works: she will use tape to transfer graphite from one composition to another, to cause one work to become less “perfect’ while transferring the image to an altogether new work. When the first work is destroyed, or degraded, it adds flaws — but also character — to the original piece, whilst creating it a new. In this process, Turon finds a metaphor for life, where art similarly reflects our own growth, ageing and maturation as individuals. Often, we must disintegrate in part, before we can realise ourselves a new. Turon’s drawing practice in fact, started as a child. Her diary entries, illustrated by drawings, entered her into a meditate state of mind whereby drawing took on a spiritual connection. Today, the artist’s work has now developed into a formal creative practice that looks at concepts such as repetition, transformation, interference, and the appreciation of subtle elements of life often taken for granted: time, life experiences, memory. We find these concepts expressed in the meticulous and detailed process of Turon’s mark-making in her artworks, a practice that is realised only through the artist’s unwavering commitment to her practice: “I have created a relationship with my art that requires time, responsibility and hard work. The more time I spend working, the more I can challenge and push myself into working in more complex compositions.” We look forward to where Turon’s works will evolve next.
