Laura Bowels

Job Title: 





The biggest driving factor for beginning making art was my diagnosis of Crohns disease, which caused me to drop out of school and become extremely isolated for some years. This made me look inward on myself, and I started to understand my queer identity. With the ever changing nature of the disease, and the addition of new physical and mental health problems within the past few years, these are my driving actors for creating art, for my own form of therapy and understanding of my own sense of self. I currently focus on work surrounding the relationship of my body and my mind, how it becomes distorted along the way. I enjoy prodding and poking at the uncomfortable, unnerving areas of my life, the ugly and taboo, also forcing this together with the extreme beauty and societal standard of gender and queerness alike.
