Laura Gannon was born 1972 in Galway, Ireland, she lives and works in London. Gannon's work oscillates between drawing, sculpture, painting and film. Recent works include abstract drawings made with metallic ink on linen. The linen has been subjected to multiple processes to reveal its corporeality: folding, bending, wrinkling suggesting their raw physicality and directness. Gannon's films mark a parallel to her sculptural drawings with their articulation of temporality, light, space and the act of looking; intimate portraits of distinctive architectural buildings.
