About the Artist

Born in Rome, Laura Colantonio currently works from her studio in Dubai. Colantonio studied drawing and painting at Rome University of Fine Arts, and has further developed her skills in London and the United Arab Emirates. Already a dynamic personality with interests in yoga, tennis, and fitness training, Colantonio cites the birth of her children as the inspiration to create more vigorous work. Colantonio is driven, she says, by “the awareness that at any moment they will ask a question about life that I may not be able to address immediately.” Thus her work has become an exploration of the unknown, a preparation for the looming questions of inquisitive young minds.

Loneliness and the effect of feeling alienated are the concerns that Colantonio faces in her artwork. Channeling a variety of colors are edges, ranging from subtle to domineering, to configure unknown spaces. Colantonio aspires to interpret reality through developing lines, thus confronting the viewers with a journey of the senses: "Let the free-flowing nature of lines guide you," she says.

About the Exhibition

Metamorphosis

Featuring eighteen artists, Metamorphosis is an exhibition of contrast and change. The works on view present diverse and opposing perspectives on time, place, and the human condition, calling into question the arbitrary nature of boundaries. Through dynamic juxtapositions, the exhibition conjures feelings of harmony and mutual transformation despite the presence of difference.
