Installation artist Ya Laford is best known for her signature use of wall-to-wall recurring geometric patterns including her highly regarded infusion of hypnotizing LED luminaries returns to South Florida’s Pompano Beach Cultural Arts Center activating the exhibition space with a large-scale installation to debit new virtual reality installations along with geometric sculptures relishing in abstract forms, imagery and reflections.

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.

Opening Reception: January 10, 6 - 9 pm
