LAURA AMUSSEN
www.bakerartist.org/node/1396 

Laura Amussen applies a thematically based, curatorial approach to her work, producing multiple works simultaneously, one informing the other. Employing an interdisciplinary approach that often includes large-scale site-specific installations, intimate sculptures, mixed media works, videos, projections, photographs, and performances, her practice is that of a visual storyteller. She is often drawn to natural materials or themes that reference the natural world as metaphor and labor-intensive repetitive processes to create surfaces which are textured and nuanced.
Laura has just been named a 2020 Baker Artist Award Winner in the Interdisciplinary Arts category. She is Ladew’s 2020 artist-in-residence.
