Ruined Landscapes

Paintings of the Balkan War Zone, on loan from the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts, gift of Hugh and Jane Spratt McColl

A native of Scotland, eventually settling in France, painter Laura Buxton traveled to the Balkans in 1994 and found great inspiration for her work in a war-ridden land. “As an artist,” Buxton said, “I felt this tremendous responsibility to say something that would be worthwhile, that other people could see. And even if they couldn’t understand, they could at least gain some insight from a different point of view.”
