Laura E. Kennedy is a visual artist currently based in nipaluna/Hobart, Tasmania. Her drawings aspire to emulate the works of the European Masters while being constructed from traditionally inferior materials and concealing their utilisation of current advanced technologies. Kennedy uses her playful and intentionally long-winded titles to humorously highlight the plight of animals and other humanitarian causes. The titles of her most recent series explored the enduring impact of colonisation on the indigenous population. A graduate of Sydney College of the Arts, she has held three successful solo exhibitions, been a finalist in a series of prestigious art prizes including the Churchie Emerging Art Prize, STILL: National Still Life Award, the Paul Guest Drawing Prize, City of Hobart Art Prize and in 2018 she won the inaugural $20,000 Henry Jones Art Prize. Also in 2018, she was approached to participate in an exhibition at a fantastic New York commercial gallery. After a brief hiatus, she recently participated in a group exhibition at the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery in Launceston.
