Telling tales. Painter. Curator Writer.

Laura Moreton-Griffiths is interested in the politics of time and how modern – western – history is predicated on a linear model of storytelling. Her visual art practice conflates past, present and future, to create collapsing timelines of interacting and cascading cause and effect, that draw on cultural and art-historical references, and autobiographical memories. Her work reflects the things she is opposed to and thus necessarily deals with issues of conflict and control. Always amazed by what we don’t know, what has been overwritten, forgotten, her practice is her attempt to fill in the gaps between known facts and fictions, and overlooked people and events at the margins of history.

Drawing, painting, objects, photography, digital collage, film and and performance via a cast of characters. Performed or hung, and animated by simple technology, light, sound and projection.
