Laurie Danial's abstractions are process-driven; her work is intuitive, experimental, and dictated by her day-to-day concerns, visual experiences, and collected ephemera of looking and feeling. She works slowly while keeping the composition open and layered until a formal dialogue between her disparate elements emerges. She has come to embrace this struggle as a key element of her process.
Danial received her art education from the Pacific Northwest College of Art and Portland State University. She has been featured in numerous solo and group shows regionally and nationally since 1991, including exhibitions at G. Gibson Gallery (Seattle, WA), Portland Art Museum, Oregon Center for Contemporary Art (Portland, OR), Schneider Museum (Ashland, OR), University of Oregon (Eugene, OR).
