LAURA JONES 

Laura enjoys creating playful art pieces. Through the combination of texture, imagery and text she strives to create emotive, tactile works of art. Her work is often concerned with the notion of depicting a narrative, and a medium that reflects a particular concept. Concept-led work and the exploration of processes are important within her practice.

For her recent Masters project, she produced a body of work inspired by childhood, in particular the story of the orphaned children on display at the Foundling Hospital Museum in London. She chose to embody the notion of collection, preservation and assemblage in reference to the curation of museums.

​Laura’s interest in the use of textiles as a medium is broad, incorporating a variety of both found and handmade papers and fabrics – which she then manipulates. Exploring three-dimensional pieces has broadened the scale and scope of her work, allowing the exploration of space within a gallery environment.
