Laura Williams Chassot is an award winning artist with exhibitions to her credit on both sides of the Atlantic in the United States and in Europe.
Laura uses a language to describe her paintings and process similar to a physicist or priest. She believes that energies in the universe can be channeled to create specific forms with a single “stroke”. Laura’s broad based scope includes studies in music, poetry and painting. Her approach to art is that there are relationships between all of its forms. Particular to her expressions in painting are styles that range from abstraction to magical realism. However, it is through her “Stroke” series, which she returns to repeatedly that she is able to readily convey “vision energy” and musical timber. “My main objective is to have the viewer experience visual energy in a Stroke Painting.”
Laura’s work is in private collections throughout the U.S. and in Europe. She was interviewed recently on Channel 3’s local station “Speak Up” in Philadelphia about her work. She was featured in an article in The Philadelphia Daily News, Portrait of an Artist, 2003 and Showtime, cover story: Silent Voices, Loud echoes, 2006; Art Matters Exhibition-ist,1995, Philadelphia; Derry News, Composition for Two Movements, Derry, New Hampshire,1997 and The Union Leader in Manchester, New Hampshire, 1997. She was also featured in a review of The Exquisite Corpse at the Swiss institute in NY, NY in the Tages-Anzeiger, Zurich, Switzerland, 1993.
Laura spends her creative time writing poetry, short stories, memoirs, drawing, woodcarving and painting.
