Laura Onions is an artist based in the West-Midlands. She is a lecturer in Fine Art at the University of Wolverhampton and Programme Assistant at Grand Union, a contemporary art gallery in Birmingham.
She makes work from archival material and collected imagery to consider spaces created for ourselves and each other, particularly in relation to gender and feminist ways of learning.
Using a painterly approach to printmaking, her work explores the ambiguous territory between abstraction and figuration that also seeks to loosen the processes of printmaking. She frequently looks to the history of art, obscuring and subverting dominant imagery found in the accepted canon to form alternate readings.
Studio holder at Eagleworks, Wolverhampton.
