Laine Justice is a painter with extraordinary, otherworldly vision. Upon silk stretched canvases, she skillfully incorporates oil paint, powdered pigments, gold leaf, glitter and graphite drawings to create epic works that read as both riveting abstractions and densely layered narratives.
The Battle Of Mara Series – The eight paintings interpret scenes from the mythological Battle of Mara, where and when Mara futilely attempts to derail Siddhartha from his momentous path towards enlightenment.
Laine Justice received her BFA in painting and sculpture with honors from the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY
