ABOUT THE ARTIST
At the base of these artistic creations is the textile material, which creates perhaps the strongest intimacy relationship with the human body, coming into contact with our skin daily.
For Laura, the fabric and the textile yarn have become the indispensable means of artistic expression for the transmission of ideas. The fabric has exceeded its strictly utilitarian value and has become an artistic material, loaded with meanings, abstract concepts and emotion. This material is metamorphosed into the channel through which some fundamental themes for the history of mankind are addressed.
On the one hand, social-political issues, such as the global phenomenon of migration, are debated, in which the fabric seems to look like an eroded crust. Also spiritual states, such as human suffering, is revealed by the ancestral symbol of the butterfly.
