Laura uses the pre-existing media of antiquarian books to explore the dark subtext of human interaction. With the aid of a scalpel, she brings to life her own creations by ruthlessly slicing and combining them with the working parts of someone else’s. By a process of deconstruction and reconstruction she creates small vignettes within the pages of old books that are both bizarre and unsettling.
Bleed Between The Lines seeks to explore Beaumont’s personal obsession with creating narrative scenarios in small format by combining her boundless love for plastic gurines, her passion for words and her day job in animation.
Laura Beaumont is an Emmy Award winning animation writer who studied Time Based Media at The Cass London. She has created hundreds of hours of television, written and illustrated lots of books and is a pointless answer on Pointless. The exhibition follows Beaumont’s first solo exhibtion at The Cob Gallery in November 2015, with accompanying installation.
