Laura Holmes (b.2000, Norwich) is a British painter, based in London. She left De Montfort University (Leicester) in 2021 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art, and is now graduating from the Painting programme at The Royal College of Art. She recently had her first solo show (Colour Of A Bruise, 2022) in London, and has shown work in multiple group shows in London and Leicester.
Holmes uses her practice to unearth methods of investigating her relationship with painting itself. Her work is the unfurling of experiences, observations, objects, and memories, which she pushes into a space beyond the canvas. It's an addiction, kept in control by a list of rules, thoughts, and rituals on painting.
