Creatio Ex Nihilo
Oil and ink on canvas
Creatio Ex Nihilo was the center piece from Lauren Ciara McConnell’s 2019 degree show. This large abstract piece was developed through a mixed media process using staining and pouring techniques. The work is an abstracted representation of a birds-eye perspective of land and water separating and forming. It looks at concepts of light playing with an ethereal restful viewing experience creating peaceful atmosphere.
