I create abstract paintings through the manipulation and layering of acrylic paint. I strive to produce work that stretches the definition of painting using a novel, construction, deconstruction and reconstruction process. My paintings are composed of hand-painted acrylic that is altered once removed from an encaustic surface. The acrylic is then layered, to add dimensionality and increase intrigue, onto the final surface.

My abstract paintings are driven by my unique process and motivated by themes of self-awareness, both as an artist and individual, expression of emotions and worldwide interactions with nature. Each theme represents a force that has impacted my life and makes me who I am: Laura Hapka, artist.

This painting is part of my ‘Texture’ series and is about the urgent need to address climate change.

Texture Series: Minimalist paintings made from acrylic, and occasionally ink. The paintings are often formed to the point of being sculptural by adding layer upon layer of cut paint. As designed, the composition is uncomplicated but the work conveys complexity through its size, fullness and manipulation of color and/or tone, with or without text. Every painting references a specific subject or idea.
