Bio / Statement:
Laura Larson grew up in Chicago and was nourished by field trips to the Art Institute and participation in theatrical productions in college. In 1979 she moved to Los Angeles became a feminist and joined Judy Chicago’s The Dinner Party.
Larson’s work reflects her dual interest in story-telling and visual representation the building blocks for her consistent interest in Sculptural Installations and Narrative Tableau. Her current work explores our relationship to culture and its affect on our animal co-inhabitants.
She has exhibited her work extensively both regionally and nationally and been commissioned for multiple public art projects throughout L.A. county.
I went to visit Casper Brindle, and his studio helper daughter. We had a lively conversation, I learned so much from his sharing about paint and process. About how he explores different ways to show light and space. He shared the models he makes for the larger installations, planning spacing and paint. These models were about reflections and dimensions and seeing beyond one to the next through openings created in the monolith-like shapes. An extension creations from his signature work of imagined colorful horizons, seemingly dipped in a resin reflection of dimensional space. Thank you Casper for the fun experience.

My work reflects life experiences through various colorful abstractions.
My inspiration comes from nature and my travels.
Using bold colors and patterns I am constantly exploring new territory.

I utilize both technology and hands on manipulation of acrylic paint, mixed media and digital imaging to create my work.
My series, Without Brushes, consists of drawings made on an IPad and later finished with a photo editing tool. These artistic explorations took me in a new direction of combining my paintings into a series of Digital Art.
