Laura Latimer lives and works in Austin, Texas. Through mixed-media, sculpture, and large-scale installations, she creates abstract artworks that address the delicate balance between construction and destruction while setting an example of artistic, environmental stewardship.
Laura’s first creative passion was photographing the derelict structures of her Panhandle home while earning a communications BA at Texas Tech University. After years in digital publishing, she returned to school and received a BFA from Texas State University in 2005. As a founder of ars ipsa collective, Laura co-curated a series of pop-up and gallery-hosted exhibitions resulting in an Austin Critics Table nomination for best “Gallery, Body of Work.” She was a contributor and Advisory Board member for Austin-based Cantanker art magazine.
Her artwork has been shown in solo and group exhibitions throughout Texas and at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art in Indiana. She has created site-specific installation works at Austin City Hall, Box 13 ArtSpace in Houston, and Cloud Tree Gallery in Austin. Most recently, she completed the Hinge Arts Residency in Fergus Falls, MN and was selected as one of six 2019/2020 Fellowship Artists by Dimension Gallery in Austin.
