Laura Spalding Best's Profile
I am a painter living and working in Tempe, AZ. I have been exploring the collective aesthetic of the urban landscape for several years now. The idea that individuals and communities are connected literally and abstractly by common fixtures and sights is a driving force behind my work. My paintings separate and celebrate the blights on the vista, and emphasize the unappreciated flaws of our everyday view. Metal and found objects are my surfaces of choice, working on them makes my individual paintings act as parts of a larger whole, freeing my work from the standard borders of canvas and frame.
I have a BFA in Fine Art-Painting from Arizona State University and am currently the Exhibitions Manager at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
