Laura Carpenter Truitt

Laura has been working within landscape imagery for more than 15 years. Much of her work has to do with perspective. Linear perspective, surely, but also the emotional and collective perspective of landscape and personal space. The underlying conflict in her work is generated by climate change, land abuse and over consumption of all kinds.

She explains, from space our atmosphere is a thin skin. We can’t see the forest for the trees. It’s all or nothing. Sublime Nature. These perspectives frame how we see our world, and shape our future. She sees her role as an artist as reactive – to describe what she sees as our collective helplessness, contradictions and follies. Perhaps by visually distorting these perspectives, different meanings can come through them, and her paintings can nudge some of our most harmful dichotomies towards middle ground, nuance and balance.
