Gallery4Culture presents a solo exhibition of new sculpture by Seattle artist Laura Ward.
Ward is exploring the effects that patterns have on the mind, its memories and the imagination. The interiors and exteriors of abandoned spaces have become the source material for her sculptures. Each space contains patterns existing in both the architecture and decorations, and created by footprints and erosion. In this new series of work, Ward translates these patterns into three-dimensional sculptures using layered and carved paper, cement and wood. The sculptures represent interpretations of her memories sparked by images of existing patterns.
