Laura Petrovich-Cheney

“After Hurricane Sandy devastated the New Jersey coastline, I began collecting remains left behind in its wake, floorboards, window frames, cabinets, furniture, exterior siding, anything that I could find that evoked life before the storm.”

Laura’s art continues to be inspired by quilt designs, designs that are familiar and comforting. She creates new relationships between color, proportions and textures, and does not interfere with original surfaces. She says, “The faded colors and tattered wood are glimpses into the past.”
