About Laurie Skantzos
Skantzos is a Guelph-based artist who studied Fine Art at the University of Waterloo. Her minimalist wall sculptures, which she calls Portals, are made using oil, cold wax, and acrylic on shaped plywood, with beveled edges painted in neon colors that reflect off the wall and change with the light, creating a dynamic interaction between the artwork and its surroundings. She explores the interplay between solidity and ethereality, form and reflection, and color and shape.
Laurie's work has been exhibited internationally in art fairs in London, Hong Kong, Hamburg, Korea, New York, and Miami, as well as Charline Kervyn Contemporary Art in Ghent, Belgium, and The Drey Berlin.
Her recent applications meld two forms together, exploring the relationship between the works. Laurie seeks to create a sense of wonder and curiosity, and connection and unity, inviting viewers to enter a world of vibrant color and organic form.
