Laura Hepworth’s work examines the themes of creation and connection: “how few of us wonder how they were created and what connections we may have with endless vista of stars and galaxies. Do we ever stop to consider what lies in the darkness? Research implies that there is every chance the universe formed from something undetectable by the human eye: dark matter.”
Laura’s practise utilises drawings and scale installations to define and explore the relationship between art and science. By creating a series of evolving works, Laura strives to make individuals more aware of their own connections to the universe.
The structuring of stars and galaxies becomes a dominant motif in Laura’s work, evolving from geometrical drawings to the making of gigantic webs.
