Laura Arteaga Charlton: Styrovisions

2nd vernissage

Laura Arteaga Charlton

b. 1983 Chapel Hi l l , NC

Lives and works in Brooklyn, NY

Biography:

Laura Arteaga Charlton is an american visual artist and printmaker based in Brooklyn,

New York. Her work has been shown in the US and Europe and is included in numerous

private collections. She has worked as a collaborative printer at Lower East Side

Printshop, taught printmaking workshops at Princeton University, and produced

silkscreen editions out of her own printshop for various artists and institutions.

Statement:

Form dissolves

Inside becomes outside

Object becomes space

My artistic practice is inquiry into the nature of perception. How do we participate in the

construction of our reality? Can elements of our perceptual field be rearranged to

facilitate a new experience of reality? I use found objects such as cardboard boxes,

Styrofoam packing blocks, and photos of the space between things as the starting point in

my work. I am interested in negative spaces, disintegrating digital images and all that is

forgotten and overlooked. I choose these things because they have very few ideas and

mental constructs attached to them. They are therefore more open to taking on new

meanings or functioning as portals to the unrepresented.
