Thoughts on the Work

“Laura Roosevelt is a superb artist, who channels the complicated undertow of our shared past, a truth many would prefer to ignore or distort.At once celebratory and honest, her work illuminates hidden corners of our psyche while simultaneously reminds us of the ideals we still aspire to”.
Ken Burns

"Having been in the art business for over 40 years, I have found myself in a position where I look beyond the obvious talent and I seek originality. Laura's work stood out to me right away because of her innovation and ingenuity. She is not hesitant to experiment with numerous methods which evolve into multicolored patterned works of art. Her paintings emit permanence and strength in their elemental minimalism and in the complex layering. Laura's focus remains the same, surface and color."
Peter Marcelle

"We have the privilege of having several of Laura’s works in our homes. Great combination of beautiful, vibrant colors, and the pieces manage to be timeless and contemporary at the same time!"
