8 Laura Berger Artworks Exploring Human Connection - BUST

lbthepartysinhere

Based in Chicago, visual artist Laura Berger’s work emotes a space of calmness, yet playful, through her execution of balance and symmetry. Either existing in solitude or intertwined into another, all tiny naked bodies existing to serve a bigger picture, further defining and exploring the human connection. With acrylic and gouache on wood panel, Berger’s pieces explore peace and solitude, while not straying from strength in an all-female space.

Berger explains, "I'm interested in and inspired by rituals, symbols, nature, dreams, travel, our quest for self-development and freedom, and how we piece it together to create personal meaning and a sense of belonging to the greater whole."
