Artist Statement

Laura de Moxom is a mixed media alt photo artist and activist obsessed by melancholy, the passing of time, sweet sadness and the fragile beauty of existence. She searches tirelessly through her past, and the past of others, through second hand stores, forgotten objects and memories to tell stories. She slips into nostalgia, most commonly for the brutal sentimentality of the Victorian era and painstaking craft techniques of the past. She explores memory; its attachment to objects and the materiality of photographs, using a visual language of historic alternative photographic techniques, image transfer, assemblage and paint. She advocates for change through her practice, creating beautiful protest.
