Refugium: Christina Laurel @ Turchin Center for the Visual Arts
Christina Laurel is a paper artist creating installations and two-dimensional art, all with a Japanese aesthetic. Her mission is to create an “exhale” moment, an oasis that offers a respite and refuge from our daily sensory overload. Suspended lace panels support a migrating pattern of butterflies that cast shadows and respond to air movement. Perambulating – whether with shoes, walker or wheelchair – through the suspended cocoons and grounded totems of “Refugium,” the viewer will become a part of the installation and a part of the art.
