Laura Harris' work is based around the female form and what it’s like to be a woman of a certain age. Insecurities that women have in the present, fears and hopes for the future and achievements and regrets of the past. The artist is particularly interested in ideas surrounding female sexuality, societal norms, plastic surgery and reality TV.
The artist is nostalgic for an age before Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat - a time when technology played a lesser role in our social correspondence. Recording and interpreting life in its raw and unrefined state: the post-coital encounter in the bedroom, the heady euphoria of the party; the artist is interested as much in the situation itself, as in the choreography of that situation.
Each work relates to an incident or distorted reality that the artist has actually witnessed, imagined, or more often than not, actually experienced.
