Largely self taught, Angela Laby is enjoying a flourishing career as a full time, multi award winning professional artist.
Angela specialises in contemporary ‘pure’ abstract art, with the use of acrylics on canvas. Her unique use of texture is incorporated into every piece as she believes that this gives her work an added dimension, and for those who appreciate her work, something additional to contemplate.
‘I work with a variety of textures and mediums, and find that they work extremely well with my style of ‘pure’ abstract art. I find an infinite variety of textured patterning’s and designs, and consequently, it is fair to say that no two of my paintings are the same – each is uniquely individual’.
Angela exhibits extensively, with The Original Art Sale, The NZ Art Sale, The Franklin Art Exhibition, Auckland East’s Art Exhibition, Royal Easter Show Art Awards, and The Great Summer Art Exhibition being several of the more recent, and has received several awards and commendations as a result. In May 2010, she will be a participant in the 'Legato' exhibition, held in Cassino, Italy, which will represent the largest involvement of New Zealand artists in an international exhibition.
Angela’s work is found both nationally and internationally, and adorns the walls of many private collections, restaurants, hotels, offices etc.
Angela can be commissioned privately and relishes the opportunity to work with clients on a one on one basis to create a piece which fits with the client and their decor.
