Laken Bridges

Laken Bridges

My work is fueled by observation of the human condition. I am interested in power struggles within institutional and interpersonal relationships and explore the effects of related interactions on the individual. I seek to mine territories of displacement, subverting the known and pushing the familiar into a foreign existence. The contextual history of objects and the spaces in which they dwell is considered in relation to psychological and emotional responses such renderings might affect. I choose to reference elements such as furniture for their cultural baggage and potential as familiar objects to allow the viewer to bring to them her or his own experience. The figure remains absent from the work to allow the object to become the protagonist and don a symbolic presence.
