Laurel Pintynski obtained both her Bachelor's and Master's degree in Fine Arts at Michigan State University. For Laurel, color is the first and foremost important character in her work, where form and design play supporting roles. Laurel has an immense interest in color as is portrayed in her artwork. Everything in her art, works around this interest. She creates different textures to see how they disrupt or affect the portrayal or interaction of the other colors. The suspended grid systems add dimension and life to the overall form, emphasizing on the sublte movements of the tiles, while the negative space pulls all of the many parts and elements into one cohesive piece.
