Laura Vazquez Rodriguez

Laura Vazquez Rodriguez is a Southern California artist known for her vibrant paintings of mother and child. Laura's paintings are a tribute to all women. Her focus is on spirituality and art, the bond between a mother and child, life and death, love and healing. She works mostly with acrylic on canvas and carved wood panels. Strong, symmetrical compositions and continuous lines are all important elements within her complex designs. Laura is a skilled visual storyteller and her paintings abound with symbolism. Each painting is a story that unfolds to illuminate a message. "Art connects us. It is a universal language without borders. It is an experience; an emotion portrayed, like a dance of joy, a song of praise or tears of sorrow. Art is an act of mourning, an act of rejoicing. It is playful, insightful, therapeutic and uplifting. With my paintings I celebrate my Latino heritage with its rich color and symbolism. With my paintings I celebrate love and the sacredness of Life."
