       Intrigued with how one’s perception of an object or surface changes when it is photographed at a close range, Laura literally and figuratively focuses on “the seemingly unremarkable, sometimes ugly leavings of everyday life:  rust and grime, deposits and spills, mildew and decay,” to reveal “the art in accident and the ubiquity of beauty.”  Laura prints her images on canvas to create a painterly effect.
