Laura Clark is a Canadian photo-based Visual Artist who lives and works in Vancouver, Canada.
Since graduating from Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design in 2006, she has combined her passion for photography with her interest in people to create images that observe, expose and tell stories about how we relate to our world. Clark’s artistic practice focuses on the fleeting existence of time and space from moment to moment and observes remnants left behind to reveal the change and transformation that takes place to shape thought, recollections and surroundings.
Clark has extensively exhibited in galleries, public spaces and appears in private collections across British Columbia. In 2008, she received Carole Badgley Emerging Artist Award for her work exhibited as part of the DisCOVEry Exhibit: The World in a Grain of Sand at Seymour Art Gallery and one of her recent bodies of work, Remnants, has been represented as a solo exhibition at Places des Arts in 2021. In 2019, she was awarded second place in Photography at Surrey Art Gallery and her series, Dissonance, has been featured digitally with Broad Magazine in 2022. She continues to be an active and supportive member of the arts and culture community.
Clark has recently introduced ceramics, mixed media sculptural work as well as completion of her first short film. Just like her photography, this work explores the vulnerability and fragility of the human landscape and embodies her interest in the preservation of feelings and memories - converting the intangible to the tangible.
