ARTmonday: Studio Visit with Laura Allis-Richardson

Last week I visited Boston-based artist Laura Allis-Richardson at her studio at Fenway Studios. A new friend had recommended her work to me and she insisted I come have a look myself. I’m glad I took the time for a studio visit—Laura Allis-Richardson is charming, her space is wonderful, and her work is fantastic. If you like what you see, she’s participating in Fenway Open Studios this coming weekend, November 12th & 13th, 2016 at 30 Ipswich Street in Boston.

Scouting for the Webster Art Project, I was drawn to Richardson’s large abstract paintings, specifically the ones hung along the top of the room above. I also discovered that she does some mixed media pieces.

She says mixed media is very popular right now. These have some sort of twigs or straw layered atop the oil paint.

The other side of the room is her studio space. Some of these pieces are still works in progress.

These two oil paintings are currently propped up in my living room. Later this week I’ll deliver them to Webster & Company in the Boston Design Center where they’ll hang as part of the new fall/winter art installation. (If you’re interested in purchasing, let me know, or stop by the showroom. They are $750 each or $1,400 for the pair.)

Richardson plans to do a bit more work on the piece in the back.
