Laura McGrath - Untitled Frame & Holding Hands
Laura's work takes influence from her background as a trained goldsmith as she concentrates on creating objects which explore the nature of how commodity objects function within our society. It is the image the objects leave with the viewer that reflects a trace in the eye of the individual. Alongside her interest in the trace left with the observer, Laura is facinated by the concept of exlporing the boundaries between art and craft.
Laura recently graduated from a Masters degree in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery from the Royal College of Art, and since then has been exhibiting workd across the Europe.
Laura will be exhibiting two pieces in the Trace exhibition. One titled 'Untitled Frame' shown above in the image and another called 'Holding Hands'.
