Laura Chasman paints portraits of individuals she has encountered as a mother, artist, social worker, and friend. Using water-based gouache on museum mounting board, Chasman seeks to hold on to the transitory experience of being with people to whom she is drawn. The paintings go through many revisions in an attempt to reach beyond a physical description and capture the feeling, poetry, and nuances that convey the special qualities of her subjects.
