This piece radiates joy and exuberance. Since having my second daughter, I continue gaining appreciation for all things earnest, joyful, and lovely. I hope this is the kind of world my girls know; beautiful and free of cynicism.
Artist Statement for Laura Thomas’ solo exhibition - A Poem as Lovely
"A Poem as Lovely," in an allusion to the Joyce Kilmer poem, "Trees."
Trees are part of every human experience. Even in tech-heavy modern life, they persist along city sidewalks, in our furniture and buildings, and in art. Like us, they grow, blossom, and die, and like us, each one has a unique geometry. This collection emphasizes the essential, human-like nature of trees by making ‘portraits’ of their various shapes, personalities, and moods.
