In her most recent paintings, Laura Vinnedge navigates the micro interiors of the human body and its visual and philosophical relation to macro properties of the cosmic realm. Her multi-layered blended imagery references ultimate internal and external environments that challenge and investigate inherent risks in the practices of genetic modification, bio-chemical engineering and pharmaceuticals. Pulled String Theory promotes an exploration
of our collective definition of progress and the need to seek balance between seemingly altruistic benefits and the insidious and viral nature of chemical warfare on our bodies and environments.
Laura Vinnedge earned her MFA from The University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, IN and BS from Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI. She is Associate Professor of Fine Arts at University of Akron.
