Laragh Stuart was born in Wicklow, Ireland, in 1972. She was born into a family of artists; her father was sculptor Ian Stuart and her grandfather, Francis Stuart, was a celebrated writer. Her great grandmother was Maud Gonne, the muse of poet W. B. Yeats. Painting from an early age she turned from canvas to photography and moved to London to study. Having worked in commercial fashion and art photography, Stuart is now exploring poetic themes in abstract photography.
Stuart’s work extracts the ambiguity and unique artistry of the abstract in nature – the enigmatic imperfections, the beauty of decay, momentary surprises and what emerges at a glance. Resulting in interpretations, driven by intuition, that guide her to the “error” of an artists expression.
