Lawre Stone Bio

Lawre Stone's paintings explore her rocky romance with 20th c. abstraction, while engaging in conversation between an interior world and physical and psychological experience. Each painting is a forum for charting churned feelings, the chaos of our world, and the colors and nuances of everyday life. Her painting practice is as direct and matter of fact as peering into the refrigerator and imagining what could become a satisfying meal for a crew of hungry teenagers. Her paintings mine our relationship to beauty, feminism, the personal and the heroic. 

Her work has been exhibited in the United States and Europe and has been reviewed in publications including,The New Art Examiner, The New York Times, and Art in America. 

She received an MFA from The Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design.

Lawre Stone lives and paints in Ghent, New York, where she and her husband Dan Devine have raised their two sons and a rescue dog named Willie.
