Laura Wait’s voracious appetite for knowledge—both common and arcane—ensures that her multilayered paintings offer us plenty of material for reflection.

With a love of meaningful, sometimes obscure vocabularies, Wait combines words and marks to give us paintings whose depth and complexity mirror her own perception of the physical and intellectual worlds that surround her.

Wait’s marks are executed like calligraphic pen strokes, appearing to the viewer like markings on an ancient wall where time and weathering have reduced them to mere fragments of their original meaning, but which endure to remind us of both the permanence and impermanence of human endeavors.
