In general, you could call Laura Pakrow a minimalist. I say that because from a distance her works look like undulating monochromatic shields or emblems. And at first glance they tend to look very similar, but closer inspection reveals all the tiny and wonderful details. It was hard to pick two pieces that would fully represent her oeuvre because the more you look, the more differences you see, both in mood and execution. Please click to enlarge.
She covers a lot of bases as she manipulates and maneuvers within her world and pretty much every work is a winner.
Take a look at the works on her page at the Rosenfeld Gallery and you'll understand my comment about minimalism. But you'll need to visit her Website to see all her work and enjoy the sophisticated candor with which these works speak and to appreciate the full range of her repertoire.
Artist Statements are a funny thing. Hers is short, sweet and enigmatic, but I almost feel like I understand what is meant. There's definitely a lot of commitment to each piece. Some are packed full with dots, marks and scribbles, while other have more breathing room.
