Through her paintings Laura transforms her observations of women and how they relate to what their various cultures prescribe. Fascinated by the visible and invisible oppression that women experience all over the world, and the fact that both men and women tend to look down on the female race, even in the western world, Laura Tietjens wants to present a counterweight that may here and there open some eyes and in the same time unite women and enhance their self-confidence and pride.
She shows us the strength of women, which lies in so many more aspects than only in their physical beauty and power of seduction, such as in their perseverance, endurance, grace, assertiveness, wisdom and passion. Strength is always to be found in nature and in animals, that is why Laura sometimes likes to depict women and nature together.
The different animals symbolize different aspects from the subconsciousness and super conscious mind, such as emotions, gut feeling, instinct, spirituality, freedom, self defence, fear, sacrifice, compassion and unconditional love.
