Laura Wait

"I create compositions with scribblings and writings that may have been made over a period of years. My idea is to convey the feel of the shapes, with an intuitive connection. These are imagined settings...underwater...in ancient times...on other planets...or in modern urban tableaus...with elements of graffiti and signage. The marks are universal, somewhat random, and related to music, with layers of writing acting as layers of melody and rhythm."   - Laura Wait
