painting, works on paper and installations by Laura Alma McCarthy
I am fascinated by things that know their purpose because I am driven by questions. The works I create represent everyday objects that have specific purposes. I consider these works Momentos – memories of a moment; Thresholds where the past and future are simultaneously contained in the present moment, like the pause of a breath. These pieces are spaces of stillness where, for the moment, the questions may pause and there is silence before it is time to move on again.
