Laura Splan is one of the Illegal Art artists I've been working with making my movie.

Hope to see you there.

Local artists Philip Ross and Laura Splan both make work inspired by life and life science. Whether it's human or non-human life, growth or decomposition, ecosystems or HMO's, each artist works in a variety of media to present provocative work unveiling traits of the world around us. Artist Philip Ross uses living organisms and life support technologies as the inspiration and the means by which he makes his work. This process has yielded a series of highly manipulated living organisms and a number of sculptural structures specifically designed to support, confine and protect them. Laura Splan's work explores how our surroundings and experiences mediate our perceptions of the human body. Believing that interaction with objects can leave a mark on our psyche via their form and function, Splan examines the dynamics of these interactions through visual metaphors, visceral materials, and images that challenge our perceptions of beauty and horror. The artist frequently uses medical science and technology as a point of departure to question categories of what is natural, what is normal, and what is desirable.

Gallery & Bookstore opens at 7 pm
