I am Laura Kraft, a Seattle architect and artist. I started devoting considerable energy to digital printmaking in the latter half of 2013. Much of my current print work explores the ambiguous relationship between positive and negative space, foreground and background, which can create movement (rotation, flipping) as the viewer’s eye seeks to resolve the composition. In this way, the work invites viewers to participate.
My volumetric and spatial pieces start with a blank “canvas.” In other works, found forms, such as calligraphic characters, are stripped of their original meaning and used as armatures for color, textural, and spatial play.
I have created the imagery on Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. I print limited, signed editions of 100, on an Epson R3000 Photo Stylus printer using archival pigment inks and archival paper.
Laura Kraft is an architect in Seattle, specializing in residential work.
