Laura Pereira   |   Visual Artist
Through a process of aesthetic fusion, I explore the nature of human experience. The question of what is natural particularly interests me. I approach this question with awareness that time, imagination, and social expectations all have profound effects on the way we live.

In the process of making art, my perceptions of everyday experiences shift, allowing me to experience my environment in new ways. Collections of colors, textures, movements, and everyday occurrences reposition in a fluid process. In re-imagining my environment, I shed and adjust my perspective. I dig deeper in the everyday with new eyes, clarity, and open possibility. As Thoreau wrote, “I would drink deeper, fish in the sky, whose bottom is pebbly with stars.”
