Work from her current show at LES.
“This exhibit of new works by Laura Piasta uses geometry as a motif to signify a system that can stand in for an abstract concept. Using repetition to focus the viewer’s attention on relationships between forms, one is drawn into contemplation of the conceptual narratives behind the work in a way which goes beyond a rational understanding of them. Piasta’s practice derives from her experience as a dancer, where music and emotions were revealed through the lines and positioning of the body. This same disclosure of concepts through placement of the physical is echoed in this exhibition. By engaging the viewer with the perceptual, experiential and physical properties of the pieces one is able to understand the conceptual framework of the works in a way which touches on a transcendent or an intuitive awareness of meaning.” – LES Gallery
