Resin is a constant in the production of Lauriola, who over the years has developed a technique centred on the chromatic and structural relationship between liquid matter, pigments and the sign line. The latter is sometimes embodied in figures with liquid strokes, deliberately distant from a didactic figurative style, over time losing all tangency with a mimetic realism to reach pure abstraction. Thus, the protagonists of her works are colour and light, symbols of the intimate dimension and the sign that, when present, lives in a timeless and metaphysical extension in which the idea of the past and the oneiric dimension become dominant feelings.
In 2004 her first exhibition.
