With a deft hand and a profound sensitivity, Laura Green’s art weaves together a diverse array of materials, including sentimental, personal memorabilia and chance objects discovered around her home’s wood-shaded surroundings in Vallemar, California. The resulting assemblages are intricate and evocative, with webs of thread serving as both a unifying force and a metaphor for the complexity of the human experience. Through her art, Green illuminates her emotional world and confronts unresolved traumas with her poignant and introspective approach. Her works resonate with deep personal significance while inviting the viewer to contemplate themes of memory, loss, and transformation. With "The Realm of Vallemar," Laura Green pays homage to the memory of her late husband, Stephen Headley, whose hands contributed to the construction of many of the works on display. Through the act of creation, Green grapples with the weight of her grief, weaving strands of memory and emotion into delicate and evocative sculptures which remind us that even in the face of tragedy, artmaking can be a form of healing, a way of honoring the past while moving forward.
