Laura Colamonaco

Artist & Set Designer

Originally from Italy, I studied Fashion Design at Marcello Dudovich Institute of Milan and later on pursued a corporate career in Human Resources (CIPD qualified in 2011). In 2014, after a long and successful career, I went through a personal crisis that leads me to choose a new career path. Arts and Human Development have always been my biggest passions and at that time I started wondering how I could use my skills, knowledge, and expertise to help people to perform better in their reality.

 

In November 2014 I founded The Fun Side of the Moon and began self-funded research based on Jungian’s Approach on the role of images into human development.

Every image tells a story, every colour express emotions and feelings hidden within the Unconscious, the goal is to make those messages Consciousness to achieve a well functioning Human Being.

In my Artwork, I love to create images reproducing what it has been impressed in my memory and use various techniques to re-balance my emotional sense of reality.

 

Creating Art means creating a symbolic and meaningful object that allows the Unconsciuos to express and gives space to build a constructive attitude toward challenges.

 

Combining Meditation, Psychology Studies and Art practice helps me to open self-reflective space to the best of its potential. 

 

At moment I am studying Theatre Set Design at Northbrook College - MET University, I am interested on the use of Theatre as symbolic language for the Unconscious.
