Paintings by Laura Erekson Atkinson
Reception: Sat, Sep 23, 4pm
We are all builders; building our lives, building ourselves, building each other, building our relationships with others and with God. These works are a meditation on this process and the resulting structures.
Laura creates art that invites others to engage mentally, emotionally, and even physically. Her work examines several broad themes—including time, nature, identity, and faith—while also being intensely personal, allowing viewers to feel intimately connected to the artist. Each piece is grounded firmly in the medium, and she often explores the boundaries of the materials she is working with. Her latest adventure is creating with a newborn and toddler in tow.
Laura was born in Oakland, California and currently lives and works in Salt Lake City, Utah. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts at Brigham Young University in drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Laura's work has been exhibited in Maryland, Virginia, Utah, New York City, and with the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.
