Laura Latimer creates artwork exploring similarities and differences between biological and man-made systems as well as cycles of human construction and their impact on nature.
Her first creative outlet was photographing derelict structures while earning a BA at Texas Tech University. After years engaged in digital publishing, Laura received her BFA in 2005 from Texas State University. A series of exhibitions co-curated with ars ipsa collective was nominated by the Austin Critics Table for best “Gallery, Body of Work.” She served as advisory board member and was a regular contributor for Cantanker art magazine.
Laura’s work has been exhibited at the Illinois State Museum, Fort Wayne Museum of Art, IN, and throughout Texas. She has constructed site-specific installations at Austin City Hall, Box 13 ArtSpace, and Cloud Tree Gallery. Most recently, she attended a Hinge Arts Residency in Fergus Falls, MN and was selected as a 2019/2020 Fellowship Artist by Dimension Gallery in Austin.
