Denver native Laura Guese's large-scale atmospheric paintings reflect the emotional, therapeutic qualities of the sky. She has exhibited throughout the United States in solo and group exhibitions. Laura’s work can be found in public collections that include Parker Adventist Hospital in Parker, Colorado, Children’s Hospital in Aurora, Colorado, National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden, Colorado, Oakbend Medical Center in Richmond, Texas, Northwestern Mutual in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Hilton Hotels.
"Guese is at the beginning of her career, and the acrylic paintings in "Ciel Colorado" at Mike Wright Gallery mark her first forays into serious abstraction. They find her journeying into that middle ground that is so interesting to watch; grounded in representation but venturing toward something more experimental. In the sky, she has discovered a great place to explore. (Laura Guese) was doing quite well commercially just a year or so ago, painting lovely sunsets that could have defined her career as ordinary. But now she is boldly going. The sky may be her limit, but there is plenty of room up there to have some fun."
