Laura Cooper / Bio
Laura Cooper is acutely interested in and inspired by forms that occur in the natural world. Recurring throughout her work are articulations that emulate and elaborate the natural structures of found organic forms – mutable growth patterns; neural pathways; the muscular tactility of dirt, stone and branches; delicate webs and filigree; the pulse and glide of the ocean; earthly apparitions; and exquisite formations sculpted by wind or water.
