Artist Book and Studio Visit

The artist books are in!

Beautifully made and designed by David King of Extended Play, Glint features a selection of paintings made between 2015-2017 and an essay by artist/curator Ian Etter. This project was made possible by Locate Arts with support from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation. 

 An excerpt from Ian Etter's essay:   Executed prior to Laube’s time in Wales, the works comprising Glint investigate the theme of transformation. In Cormere, Laube only includes what is essential: A stoic radiator hovers above the floorboards and wall, fixed with a matching pair of rectangular vents. The viewer’s gaze circles a matrix of lines forming a mesh-like structure, without breaking past the picture plane. Absence of spatial depth keeps us on the painting’s surface. Embedded within the static, compressed perspective is a latent energy, capable of coalescing into three dimensions, like the closed pages of child’s pop-up book.
