Piece description from the artist
Following the natural flow patterns and crystalline structure, Crystallized Density emerges as a solidified thought form. Ideas come to life and connection are made. Inspiration turns to actualization and a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
Laura McClanahan's artwork is an exploration of natural patterns. Her main thesis is a study of water forms as a metaphor for thought patterns. Through photography and painting, Laura experiments with abstract imagery inspired by nature and her inner understanding of micro and macro patterns. Her images could be celestial or microscopic, this is her understanding of "as above, so below".
Laura is a graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art with an MFA degree in Studio Art. She uses experimental techniques with color darkroom photograms, video and large format printing. Laura continues to expand her explorations via paintings with resin and gemstones. Her painting series are well exhibited in New York City and at Art Fairs.
