2015 East Bay Open Studios Artist: Laurie Close

Laurie Close’s work investigates notions of depth and space on the painted surface. There is a dependency on opposing positions finding the right balance, a struggle between order and chaos. Hard edges and flat space is met with atmospheric illusion. By challenging the visual structure tension is created. Uncertainty is embraced to transcend to openness.

Laurie will be exhibiting her work at Norton Factory June 6-7 and 13-14, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Learn more about Laurie and her work on her website, laurieclose.com.
