Laford’s work finds serenity through interconnecting lines, which to her represents a metaphorical journey to communicate humanity’s unseen experiences echoed through diverse but shared accounts. Thought Patterns explores the inner psyche including the monotonous tasks of everyday life. Using marks and a reduced, neutral palette, the artist delves into thought patterns to question how we connect, respond, and make our mark on the world.
Arbel embraces emotional introspection for content; creative expression as dialogue. Pen and ink lines, handmade paper and geometric shapes allow Arbel to express depth, texture and pattern that result in visually energetic and meditative renderings.
