Laura Soto is a mixed media sculptor living and working in Southern California. She has shown at Leiminspace in Chinatown, Los Angeles (This Never Happened, 2015 & Few and Far Between, 2016), in 2016 she contributed to MaRS Gallery's Obscured and Objectified gallery shop, Corrupted Ceramics group show with Galleria Salvatore Lanteri, and MAS Attack at the Torrance Art Museum. Her most recent exhibition was ExtraTerrestrial with Galleria Salvatore Lanteri May 20 – June 24th 2017. She explores the vulnerability and poetics of material through a variety of processes. Her practice centers mainly on large forms built of fiber that transform under the weight of media amassed. These wall hanging pieces play with the tension between painting and sculpture, inviting the viewer closer.
