About the Artist
Laura Kimpton, who is known for her mixed media installations and sculpture, rose to distinction thanks to her large-scale art. She draws from her desire to question traditional views on social interaction, invoking through her art a reaction and discussion which ultimately completes her projects. “LOVE” is one piece from Kimpton’s Monumental Word Series.
