Kansan by birth and New Yorker by residence, Laura Normandin explores 89 symbols / objects in varying contexts and combinations. "The objects I choose are generally humble, domestic, and ordinary," Normandin says in her artist statement. "They reside in a world where consumption by moth, rust and thief is imminent. Despite their vulnerability to decay and distress, I seek to unearth the masked strength I sense in there. The idea that the lowly are strong, not despite their brokenness but because of it, is the the theme to which I constantly return." Well put Ms. Normandin.
