About the Artist

 

Laura Latimer grew up in the Texas plains. Her first creative expression was photographing derelict
structures while earning a BA at Texas Tech University. After years working in digital publishing, she
enrolled at Texas State University and in 2005, received a BFA in Studio Art.

As a founding member of ars ipsa collective, Laura began constructing site-specific works made from
reclaimed shipping materials. In 2012, she established a solo practice combining textural painting
and the volume of sculpture with the immersive quality of installation.

Laura’s work has been shown regionally in Texas and at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana.
Most recently, the installation Dispersal was featured at Box 13 ArtSpace, she was included in a group
showing of women sculptors at Dimension Gallery, and the Julia C. Butridge Gallery hosted a solo
exhibition of her installation and mixed media works.

Laura currently lives and works in Austin, Texas.
