My Suburban Life: A Year in Collage
Artist Laura Edwards Wooten presents her yearlong project of creating one collage each week during 2012.
As an artist living in the Virginia suburbs, Wooten seeks to both confront and integrate her multiple identities of artist, wife, mother, and suburbanite. Breaking from her previous body of work, depicting imaginary landscapes, Wooten finds inspiration in the details of her everyday life. Juggling a busy schedule of art, work and family, the steady practice of making small drawings becomes the foundation for the collages. A commitment to weekly creativity brings a new momentum and spirit of discovery to her work, resulting in a heightened sense of curiosity, gratitude, and the ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary.
This project explores what is achievable in tiny increments over time, by committing to small consistent actions and an attitude of openness to what is here, now, in the present.
