April 15 – May 27th
Space Ten Gallery is pleased to present “The Realm of Vallemar,” a solo exhibition of assemblage sculpture by Pacifica-based artist Laura Green.
With a deft hand and a profound sensitivity, Green’s art weaves together a diverse array of materials, including sentimental, personal memorabilia and chance objects discovered around her home’s wood-shaded surroundings in Vallemar, California. The resulting assemblages are intricate and evocative, with webs of thread serving as both a unifying technique and a metaphor for the complexity of the human experience. Through her art, Green illuminates her emotional world and confronts unresolved traumas with poignant introspection. Her works resonate with deep personal significance while inviting the viewer to contemplate themes of memory, loss, and transformation. With "The Realm of Vallemar," Laura Green pays homage to the memory of her late husband, Stephen Headley, whose hands contributed to the construction of many of the works on display. Through the act of creation, Green grapples with the weight of her grief, weaving strands of memory and emotion into delicate and evocative sculptures which remind us that even in the face of tragedy, art-making can be a form of healing, a way of honoring the past while forging a path forward.
Laura Green is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Pacifica, California. “The Realm of Vallemar” is Green’s first solo gallery exhibition in Los Angeles.
