Laura has also made multiple public art pieces, of which the last is a mural on the facade of a block of flats in Jamppa, Järvenpää in Summer 2022. In the exhibition of Vie minut sinne Laura continues with a series of “Flowers and plants”. The works of the series are plain interpretations of plants and flowers. Considered color and form combinations make the pieces strong and fresh. The relation between the colors is highlighted in the pieces.
In Vie minut sinne – exhibition Gröndahl’s flowers and plants have gotten new forms painted on the wood and canvas. Plants and flowers take all the area that is for them. The series of work began in 2019 when Laura was living in Sant Pol de Mar -village in Catalonia and when she was moving a lot on mountains, beaches and forests. The light of the Mediterranean sea and effects of nature are still visible in her work.
Vie minut sinne -exhibition is longing for somewhere there in the past, when everything was apparently light.
