Laura Hopes

My practice is pre-occupied by landscape - how we physically and emotionally engage with it - and how our experiences, imaginings and memories of landscape shape us.
The term landscape refers to a sculpted or shaped environment, and I am interested to what extent landscapes are manufactured, either by man, or naturally, over time.
I make work from a highly subjective perspective, and am wary of trying to portray a universal experience. Instead, I explore the edges of wild landscapes, in an effort to understand the power that they hold for me.
