Perth-based multi-media artist Laura Adel Johnson is now a yoga teacher. After stumbling on to her account and realizing who it was, I couldn’t help reaching back in time to her large-scale fairy light installations. It was unconventional choice to explore her ideas on human connectivity and emotions. The whimsy of the everyday was visual icebreaker to preface her experiments engaging with her emotive displays. They were inspired by what she called “gaudy” Christmas lights and decorations she’d seen around town during her 2007 residency in Omaha, Nebraska.
I wish she were still exploring and creating art, but one things for sure… you can never unsee something wonderful.
