Artist Laura Kimpton
“Flying Solo” is a collection of recycled mixed media creations. Laura Kimpton uses original photographs, found objects, bird skulls, picture frames, books, antique toys, paint, and resin to create objects of history that take flight. The exhibition represents Laura’s “connection to birds and her own need to tear down the walls that keep us from our inner core.”
The nature of Kimpton’s work is inherently social as she requires reaction and discussion for it to complete its task. She is continually exploring new mediums in her search for revelatory communication.
Laura Kimpton received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The San Francisco Art Institute and a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco. She currently resides in Marin County, California. She is a three-time Honorarium Grant Recipient at Burning Man and the creator of Celtic Forest.
