LAURA FISCHER is a fine artist living and working in Encinitas, California. Her recent series of rock forms foraged from nature explores knotted structures- one of the oldest gestures practiced by humankind. Through this ancient textile technique, the work touches on themes of persistent patterns and habits, cycles, loops, and cumulative ghosts. Each found stone in this series has been covered in hand-knotted cotton thread that echoes and celebrates its organic shape.
Laura holds an MFA from San Francisco State University and a BA from Colorado College. Her work has been exhibited at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, Headlands Center for the Arts, Øgarrd, and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum.
