Statement

Laura Collins is based in Chicago with a Bachelors of Fine and Applied Arts in Painting from the University of Illinois, and a Masters of Arts in New Media from DePaul University. She is currently pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Women’s Studies from DePaul University.

I work intuitively, often alluding to moments of personal discomfort and alienation, proposing them to be in fact universal. While generally a simple pairing of two images, my collages combine to form complex relationships. There is a tension between the images where they work together, yet constantly reject one another. It is my hope that this guides a cyclical involvement for the viewer. My recent practice has focused on challenging our complacency with bodily objectification.
