Laura Shill

 

A recent MFA graduate, CPAC welcomes our newest faculty member, Laura Shill. Laura is a maximalist artist who makes work that is a collision of collecting, costuming, performance, installation and photography.  Using reclaimed textiles and laborious craft-work, and drawing upon early photographic practices and the hidden mother tintypes of the 19th Century, Shill re-imagines the photographer’s studio as a feminine, domestic, bodily space where subjects reveal and conceal themselves for the camera.   Learn more about Laura from her website.
