Laura Ramanauskaite
(click image to enlarge)


Translating digital pornographic imagery into painterly techniques, Laura Ramanauskaite’s paintings aim to explore the nature of human sexual desire. Considering pictorial space, colour relationships and form, the paintings investigate the sexualised body through the language of abstract painting. Her works create a heightened viewing experience; the sexually explicit content invites the spectator to be immersed in the seductive ux of fragmentation. e paintings transform pornography into aesthetic sensation with striking colours and ambiguous collage. e oscillation between concealment and revelation is the key for this celebratory approach to sex. Aiming to arouse and seduce the psyche, and make otherwise sanitised and desexualised desires come to one’s awareness.
