Summer Art Fridays: Laura Petrovich-Cheney
For this week’s partnership with ArtInfo, we’ve chosen the work of Laura Petrovich-Cheney, an art teacher, sculptor, and photographer whose work is inspired by salvaged materials and quilt designs. The piece above, “Barn Razing,” is inspired by her summers spent on the New Jersey shore — and composed of old barn wood, boat wood and picket fencing.
Describe your process.
I give value to objects that are normally ignored, stepped on, tossed aside, or washed up upon the shore as debris. I use motorized saws to create new relationships between colors and textures. The work investigates how I manage life’s ambiguities.
