What is the most interesting thing you have painted/sculpted and why?
Laura Pollak: Laura Pollak is an internationally acclaimed Pastel Artist winning top awards and is represented in numerous venues, including Galleries and Museums across the nation. Most recently her work has been curated into the Hilbert Museum in Southern California and shown in the VEFA GALLERY also in California. Pollak’s landscapes inform her abstract paintings, that are in the genre of Abstract Realism. This last year she has become enthralled with embedding gem stones into her paintings, creating a glistening, translucent sense of space. Laura’s unique paintings have an ethereal glow, where the source of light emanates from within the painting like a flame.

“Creating art is only part of the process. Like a dialogue between friends, art must be shared and seen in order to close the circle and convey the idea. I invite you to join me on this journey of discovery.”
