Koch of Palm Beach, FL, and Aspen, CO. Quoting a review of Epler’s Art by Don Lambert, writer of the Saturday Review, American Artist, many national or regional publications, as well as curator of exhibitions at about four hundred museums, art centers and libraries, including the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C.: “While the fact that Laura Epler’s art doesn’t fit into a specific category may seem a weakness, it is actually the fearless strength and breadth of genius. The paintings do not need categorization; they are beyond that need in both, their emotional content and their technical ability. The paintings move back and forth from hints of subject matter to abstraction, from didactic to spiritual. One senses that she started where Rothko and Pollock ended, infusing them with post-modernist concerns of journalizing, mysticism and feminism. The results are paintings, which can be read only on a solitary level, requiring intelligence and intuition. Gazing into the paintings, almost falling into them, one feels the layers of paint symbolic of expression and discovery. Then, upon realizing the connectedness of it all – essentially life and art – the satisfaction arrives. D. Lambert/ Arts Digest. Presented by Contemporary Art Projects USA, Laura Epler exhibited her exquisite Artworks during Art Basel Miami Week 2017.
