Looking at artist Laura Breitman’s work from a distance gives the impression of a photograph or painting…when in reality it’s hundreds or thousands of intricately placed pieces of fabric.

She says of her work…

I am committed to expressing how light interacts with form and the task of fooling the eye. Thousands of pieces of fabric are often contained in each work. Attention to detail is my way of capturing viewers, bringing them in closer so that details meld into shapes and color – which is often the case when we contemplate an object. It is this type of meditation and study of individual elements that trigger the kinds of thoughts that sweep through our minds and take us by surprise. My work is meant to inspire these moments.”
