Detailed images from natural and artificial worlds are arranged to celebrate beauty and remind us of shared physical, emotional and spiritual space. Singed marks imply a cleansing flame. Soft/hard, pretty/ugly go together. Works are guided by texture, color, storytelling, humor, and awe.
Laura Klopfenstein is a mixed media artist living in Austin, Texas. She uses collage and assemblage to explore social and environmental inequalities. Works are playful with a bite–symbols, human and organic imprints are combined to form a compelling, tactile, and quietly explosive composition.
