Painting / Laurel Hansen

My work deals with layers of reality. Fusing myth and dream with everyday life. Ideas of past, present and future are combined. Everything from angels to appliances. Dreams and their layers of information, meta-culture and myth inhabit my work. I'm inspired by utilitarian objects and art from other cultures—simple and complex products of invention. Every drawing is a Birth of Worlds. Transitional space interests; water, smokey rooms, air, light, objects, creatures and people that dissolve and appear. I'm constantly faced with the apparent inconsistencies of space and color, strange happenings in every day places. I don't think myths, stories, ancient civilizations, and primitive culture are so far away. The information seeps through past, present, and future, leaking in, sending messages like postcards ... messages, auspicious and divine, full of humor.
