Name: Laura Alexander
Statement: My work is driven by wonder. I work with the intrinsic qualities of materials creating a vocabulary that is my own, pushing and pulling limitations. I build layers of paper to manipulate light and shadows. The shadows become as much part of the piece as the art that casts them. I cut the paper by hand with an xacto knife creating precise, labor intensive pieces that remain playful and fresh. After eight years of paring my work down to a neutral (mostly white) palette, I began painting the backside of my paper with acrylic paint. This creates colored shadows, while the art remains all white. The pieces become illuminated from within becoming sculptural paintings
