All of nature in conversation. We’re not invited. So we wreck the party.

Artist Statement: Humans and nature engage in a relationship which grows exceedingly odd as society’s view of progression, largely centered around industry, capitalism and its consumer/materialistic culture as a byproduct transcends the natural order of the environment we are bound to; a complex relationship which can partially be summarized by the concept of an ever advancing civilization liking the idea of nature, but not its actual presence and essence.
Artist Bio: Laura Perry graduated in 2013 from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BA in Studio Art. Her work reflects her attention to line, color, and detail, with an emphasis on organic movements throughout the composition. She is both an abstract painter and a photographer, often blurring the lines between the two. Recently, her expressions have crossed over into the realm of installations, which she constructs and then manipulates through photography to capture what is truly envisioned. Common elements found throughout her work include themes discussing the abstract nature of our collective perceived reality, time and space, and the general continuum in which all things, elements, and events are interconnected and in which we all exist.
