Art UK, Timed Auction (9/68)


Artist Laura Gannon's work oscillates between drawing, sculpture, painting and film. Recent works include abstract drawings made with metallic ink on linen. The linen has been subjected to multiple processes to reveal its corporeality: folding, bending, wrinkling suggesting a raw physicality and directness. Her visual language draws from architecture, design and the language of  female writers. Smoke is named after a Lydia Davis short story.

Gannon's films mark a parallel to her sculptural drawings with their articulation of temporality, light, space and the act of looking; intimate portraits of distinctive architectural buildings. 

Born in Ireland in 1972, Laura Gannon lives and works in London.
