laura beaumont, ‘The Illustrated Family Doctor’, 2016, Gallery Different

Laura Beaumont works in series. Each piece is unique but she will work on a series of up to 10 sculptures using the same book title. Each piece has a story which is integral to the piece:

Although the heart is usually associated with joy, love and passion - it is also where we hold our negative emotions. It’s where we feel loneliness, shame, regret, disappointment and fear. It bleeds. It falls. It breaks.

Each character at the wedding has dark secrets, but the regenerative nature of the heart will insure that they will continue to love, feel joy and survive. These feelings are common to all humans. This one single organ that sustains us each individually, allows us to share these experiences universally.
