Laura Moriarty makes process-driven sculptural paintings and works on paper whose forms, colors, textures and patterns result from the same processes that shape and reshape the earth: heating and cooling, erosion, subduction, friction, enfolding, weathering, slippage. The sculptures featured here were made using materials such as pigmented beeswax, black sand, powdered charcoal, metallic pigment, etc.
Born in Beacon, New York, Laura received training through an apprenticeship in hand papermaking (1986-1990) and is otherwise self-taught. Since 1992, her work has been presented in numerous exhibitions, both nationally and internationally.
