Cascade Gallery presents watercolor paintings by Eugene-based artist Laura Ahola-Young. Inspired by fleeting and destructive aspects of our biological world, Ahola-Young reworks her paintings’ surfaces with glazes and scraping in order to reflect history and memory of a structure. Within layers of paint and represented spaces, she reveals fleeting warnings - prodromes – as in early symptoms indicating the attack of a disease. She says, “When painting, I am actively creating while simultaneously destroying. . . . My work reflects my desire for absolutes and claims none."
Originally from Minnesota, Ahola-Young received a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and MFA from San Jose State University. She teaches art at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon.
