Critical Reviews

Nancy C. Gardner, Art Consultant, who curated “Women in the Visual Arts,” at the University of Illinois’ Allerton House, Monticello, Illinois, February – March, 2001: “Laurel Jensen Paul’s painting titled, “Carolyn,” captures the beauty and innocence of a young girl, her daughter who is now a grown woman with her own child. Family members are the preference for this artist, but she does not focus on the sentimental, but  rather presents an affectionate and joyous interpretation. Carolyn is contemplative, unaware of the artist or the viewer, which can be the nature of young children secure in their surroundings. We observe the rich play of the many colors in her hair, flesh and dress. The artist’s elegant use of paint blends into an organic whole. The “art” is just as significant to this artist as is the subject. This particular painting has been shown in three major national juried exhibitions.”

The Kentucky Advocate, Danville, Kentucky, February 11, 2001, by Jenny Watkins - "An artist who sets out to paint a portrait tackles a daunting task. There is, perhaps, no more infinite a subject on which to focus one's artistic attention than the human form. A lifetime could be spent trying to capture a few of the facial expressions, gestures and contortions that define a single person's everyday repertoire. Add to this the variety of humanity itself it should then come as no surprise that the current exhibit at Gallery on the Square, The Face and the Figure, was flooded with entries. Bonding, by Laurel Jensen Paul, a painting reminiscent of the work of Mary Cassatt,  depicts a man, likely blue-collared, embracing his young baby, and features lively brush work and color in contrast to the quiet scene."

Mr. C. Hill, M.A., professional educator and artist, New York, NY, the Juror of Awards at the Association of Artists and Craftsmen of Porter County, Indiana, Illiana Artists 6th Annual Juried Exhibition “2001: A Visual Odyssey,” at the Chesterton Art Gallery, Chesterton, Indiana, January 21 – February 28, 2001, Best of Show Award awarded to "Cousins III": "A beautiful textured painting that captures part of the nature of childhood and family relationships. Has many components with which to draw an emotional response from the viewer. Affecting, real, at once both personal and universal."

The Peoria Journal Star, Peoria, Illinois, July 13, 1980, by Jerry Klein - "Laurel Paul's fascinating 'Family Picnic' is a real eye-catcher that somehow invites repeated inspection."

The Peoria Journal Star, Peoria, Illinois, March 24, 1974, by Jerry Klein - 'Portraits of Carolyn,' an exhibition of oil paintings by Laurel Paul, opens today at the Linda Pyle Art Studio. All but one of the works are portraits, the exception being a still life of flowers. Technically superb, but even more so is the sense of affection her portraits radiate. They have been done over a four-year period and depict with an inner radiance the experience of a girl growing up. Her work is a blend of realism and impressionism with colors somewhat reminiscent of Renoir's family portraits, done for the most part against flowers and outdoor scenes. The statement is personal, the effect universal."
