LOCAL ART BY LOCAL ARTISTS: Laura Atkinson
Laura Atkinson is an undergraduate student of Fine Art at Ulster University, and most of her work explores the relationship between architectural, man-made  and organic forms, between abstract and figurative shapes, using mixed media; photography, acrylic paint, paper stencils, linocuts and digital manipulation, to create wall based collages that challenge perspectives and create an escape from the paradigm of reality, allowing the viewer to share the sense of relief that she encounters while creating the work.
