Laura Mitrow’s Natural Structures

Artist Laura Mitrow’s works reference natural structures such as antlers, bone, corals, shells and crustaceans. Her abstract constructions bridge the organic and inorganic worlds and merge life with art.  (Above: From an exhibition at Art Mûr gallery in Montreal)

    I especially like the paper/wood/wire/glue sculptures that sort of twist and twirl. They seem organic, yet embellished beyond what nature might turn out, or maybe just what nature might do on a different scale (microscopic)?
