Laura Stack

Organic abstractions, an amalgam of the natural and the synthetic, best describes my recent mixed media work. Borrowing structures from nature and technology, my drawn, painted, and poured images morph into odd, though vaguely familiar forms that float, hover, and drip. The poured ink meanders and settles into shapes and veils of color and pattern. Into these fields of floating, spongy nebulae, I superimpose precisely painted organic or geometric forms. Using both improvised and calculated methods, I create a space that suggests our contradictory experiences with biology and technology, the familiar and the otherworldly, analytical distance and emotional surrender, reserve and abandon, beauty and the grotesque.
