DESIGNER + ARTIST
Melbourne > New York > Portland
Laura Wade is an Australian artist and designer based in Portland, OR.
This site is a dedicated log of my personal art work.
The ‘LINK’ project started in 2010 as a series of experiments that used textile structures as a blueprint for architectural forms.
Knitted loops were isolated, distorted and multiplied at scale.
2D shapes transformed into 3D forms by manually interlocking loops, mimicking the tension and movement of a yarn.
Over time, textiles, acrylic, paper and ink have been substituted in the process and continue to be explored.
