ABOUT

LAURA SANFORD is an interdisciplinary artist and musician from the Bay Area currently residing in Berkeley, CA. She explores absurd and metaphysical world-building, late blooming queer selfhood, and the tension between mind and body. Using tactile installations, playful performances, and visual art, she blends the whimsical with the grotesque. Though drawn to the dark underbelly of human experience, Laura hopes to reflect child-like wonder in everything she creates.

In the past year, she focused mainly on the creation of self portraits, interpreted spatially and through sculptural beadwork. Now her focus is on creating a one woman show.

She is a Root Division alum and current studio artist at The Compound Gallery, and has exhibited work at Gray Area, Root Division, Pro Arts Gallery, Axis Gallery, and The Bay Area Discovery Museum.
