Laura Alexander's work is driven by wonder. She plays off the intrinsic qualities of materials creating a vocabulary that is her own. She builds layers of paper and/or glass to manipulate light and shadows. The shadows themselves are as much part of the piece as the art that casts them. Like a scientist, she studies the materials, pushing and pulling their limitations. The majority of her work is white creating a rainbow of subtleties for stark shadows to frolic. The work is labor intensive and precise while remaining playful and fresh.
