Laurie Yehia Biography
My work is intended to reflect layered reality through constructions of objects and painting. In this piece, painted geometric forms and re-purposed wall plates overlay open space filled with screws. The objects retain traces of their functionality while being charged with possibilities of re-interpretation. Yehia studied painting, drawing and ceramics
at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago before focusing on printmaking with Nathan Oliviera as an art major at Stanford University, and earning her B.A. with Honors in Art from Wesleyan University. Later in life, she re-focused on painting and constructions, studying with Tom Wudl at his studio in the Los Angeles Arts District. Her diverse experiences in the interim--as lawyer, leadership consultant, public education advocate and mother--have informed her art. Yehia’s work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions, selected for awards on ARTslant.com, and published in APÉRO Catalogues ‘Surrounding’ (June 2017) and ‘Introspection’ (July 2017), and in International Contemporary Artists Vol VIII (Lemonidou and Antoniadou, curators, 2014). She co-curates exhibitions with Tressa Miller and Tom Wudl for the collective StudioEleven Artists. Yehia also currently serves on the Santa Monica Arts Commission and Public Arts Committee.
