Laura Buckley (b. 1977) works sculpturally with projected light, making it visible as a medium and causing its dispersal in space, therefore the built environment and structural support that surrounds it have become an integral part of the work. Importantly, Buckley reveals the process by which works of art and images generally emerge, revealing the methods of installation and equipment she uses. However the works reductive qualities are at play as rich figurative image is bounced and reflected across mirror and Perspex geometric planes transforming it into substance and its own materiality. The scenes of everyday life depicted in this artist’s films are transported to an extramundane dimension by the psychedelic process of her practice.
In 2010 Laura Buckley had her first solo exhibition at Mothers Tankstation, Dublin and was shortlisted for the 'Converse/Dazed Emerging Artist Prize', with an exhibition of her work at the Stephen Friedman Gallery, London. Group shows include ‘...Et De Lumiere' (with Jacob Mattner), 401 Contemporary, Berlin, 2010, ‘Laura Buckley, Hugo Paris, Haroon Mirza & Doug Fishbone, Rokeby, London, 2009 and Material Presence at 176 Gallery, 2008.
