Artist

Laurie Maun

Laurie Maun is an artist and textile designer based in London. Although Laurie’s core study is textiles, she is a multi-disciplinary artist, spanning painting, drawing and printmaking. Her work explores and responds to the relationship between texture, colour and shape mostly based on abstract form but also sometimes observational, figurative matter.

After gaining a BA in Textile Design from Manchester Art School, Laurie moved to London in 2014 to train in couture embroidery. In 2015 Laurie founded her own interiors company, producing hand-embroidered items for the home and limited edition prints. The following year Laurie was featured by The Barbican Museum in ‘The Barbican Maker’ which focused on promoting the works of an up-and-coming maker based in London. It was after this stepping-stone in her career that Laurie rediscovered her love for painting.

Laurie's Style

Laurie describes her paintings as a play on contact, conversation and perception. Her work is strongly focused on how colours meet and interact with one another, with her combination of luminous yet muted tones that make up Laurie’s very distinctive palette. The shapes that exist in each painting are informed by nature. Her bold organic forms are abstracted from every-day objects and shadows, formed in the evening light, helping Laurie bring her works to life.

 

‘Summer Moments’ is Laurie's fist collection for Partnership Editions. Painted during the beginnings of the Covid-19 lockdown, each piece is a reflection of summer memories, days filled with colour and warmth and long hazy evenings. A hopeful anticipation for the months to come.

“My paintings tend to reflect my environment, a place of balance and imbalance, playfulness and connection with colour being the main thread that ties each piece together.” - Laurie Maun

Drop 4 - Autumn 2020

“My immediate surroundings have always been a huge factor for inspiring my art. I'm a creature of comfort, I like my home, I like being surrounded by beautiful objects and I also like architecture and nature. I've spent the last two years residing in the most wonderful 1920's art deco apartment in SE London. The building is cherished by all residents leading to a great community spirit and this sort of unusual connection/protection I've never experienced when living elsewhere. My latest collection for Partnership Editions is a tribute to my home. The summer sun shining through the original wrought iron windows help form the preliminary sketches which are layered, multiplied and connected to create markings on the two larger pieces entitled 'Round The Side' and 'Through'. My palette, consisting of deep reds, browns and pops of powder blue and yellow moves away from the subtle more muted tones seen in my previous collection and in turn represent a sense of growth and maturity. The smaller works are the result of a summer filled with sketching from my on site allotment - a place that has quickly become a huge part of my world. Each painting is an abstraction of a plant or flower I've grown that I’ve enjoyed watching come into bloom over the past months. The Taymount Collection is all about sentiment, gratitude and unity. It's an expression of my appreciation for what I have and a tribute to the place that’s kept me inspired this summer. “ - Laurie Maun, Taymount Collection
