A working studio and gallery, NG Collective features the work of Laura Naples, an abstract painter based in Hudson, Ohio.
Her paintings delineate and elevate discrete elements – drips, pours, and larger gestures – that pivot in and out of her control. By focusing on what she describes as the “notable qualities” of these elements, the artist pursues a gestalt, employing different media to highlight the materiality of her painting practice – specifically, the energy of darker lines transversing lighter forms, or inversely, lighter lines against a darker background – and how it impacts the rhythm of a composition.
NG Collective originated in 2013 as a conversation between Laura and her sister, Atlanta-based artist Kristen Giorgi, that led to a dual-city painting collaborative. NG Collective aligns with its original synergistic intention at Pinecrest, as Laura takes on the role of aesthetic storyteller – and establishes an environment imbued with creative inspiration, practice, and application where art functions as both anchor and connector.Mon, Weds, Thurs, Fri, Sun: 11am-4pm and by appointment
