Laura Sanders16 One Hot Aternoon in July – Paintings by Laura Sanders

Water is a recurring setting in most of Laura Sander’ paintings. She describes it as  “at once mystical and mundane”.  Sandra began her obsession with water when she saw a  photograph of young girls trying to do normal things like go shopping in a big flood. Her imagination started to run away and she just went with it. Her subjects are usually her then 11-year-old daughter and her friends. Her paintings are a piece of everyone’s childhood we wish we could hang on to. That one magical day in the middle of summer when we didn’t have a care in the world.

People, when told that what they’re watching is a painting and not a picture usually scream “Faaake!”. In this respect, Pedro Campos is one of the most brilliant hyper-realistic painters out there today. The quality of his work surpasses even that of dedicated photographers.

L enjeu 27x35cm. Oil on Canvas by Dominique Hoffer

At first, I am working as a professional pilot for various swiss and south african airlines (1972-1988). In 1988, I quit cockpits and dedicate myself to painting. Oil on canvas has become my tool very soon. I like to figure strange, unusual, poetic situations and atmospheres, including these four elements, most of the time : Nature, characters, animals and objects. All elements are figured in a realistic manner, but in an unreal collection.
