About Laura Burke
Laura Burke, who identifies by the pronouns she and her, is a Brooklyn based artist focused around drawing. Her work explores the significance of memory in relation to what is still around us. Is it possible for a piece to be labeled a still life, when a configuration of objects never existed to begin with? Each drawing becomes a configuration of adored objects that harken back to comfort, and oftentimes vulnerability, but are and were never an actual observed scene.
Burke was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. Her background is in printmaking, specifically large scale screen printing, but has since shifted focus to drawing.
