Laura Frances Coyne MA Fine Art
With an interest in the female form, the notion of the beauty myth and the normalisation of beautifying procedures within society, Laura creates paintings and figures using the medium of paint, collage and ceramics. Laura is interested in creating a narrative, exploring the situations and emotions people experience due to the pressures of beauty standards and social media.
Staging is a key aspect within the works, as Laura uses film stills/photographs she constructs as a source imagery for her paintings, alongside using found imagery from fashion magazines to create collages which act as preliminary sketches, but also become incorporated within the 3D works.
Laura Coyne is an artist who graduated from Leeds Arts University with a First Class degree in Fine Art and is currently based in Manchester.
