LAURA LAMONT MURRAY
The years spent as an architecturally-trained interior designer are built into Laurie Lamont Murray's paintings and metal sculptures. On canvas, she finds herself reaching beyond the limits of the painted surface, so that adding 3-D to her toolbox became almost inevitable. With steel or on canvas, she creates a conversation between shapes and colors, layers and line, recognized by its geometric element and strong sense of design. Laurie is best known as an abstract artist, but her love of drawing and taking on new challenges sometimes lead her into the realm of semi-abstract or abstracted realism.
Laurie has won numerous awards in juried shows throughout the greater Philadelphia area, and her work is included in private corporate collections, including Raymond James Wealth Management in Philadelphia and the PNC Corporate Headquarters in Pittsburgh.
