The Feral State began in Laurel’s studio as she investigated the constraints of modern childhood and increasing disconnection from nature through a series of paintings depicting children following birds, escaping their urban lives and returning to the wild.

Laurel’s paintings reveal processes of transformation and metamorphosis, capturing states of flux between illustration and abstraction, chaos and control. Abstract layers of dripping paint inviting us to look through worlds of possibility and build our own reality.
