Page Laughlin, a professor of art, was recently selected to have her work displayed the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.
The display is titled Dwelling: Interiors and is composed of paintings by Laughlin and photographs by Pamela Pecchio from the University of Virginia. The exhibition compares the artist’s investigations of interior spaces from their recent bodies of work. Both artists are interested in the role domestic spaces play in our lives.
“Currently, my paintings are based on photographs of interiors from high-end shelter magazines like Architectural Digest,” Laughlin shares. “These commercial images are compelling subjects for my painting because they reveal much about our consumptive desires. I am interested in what these fantasies reveal upon closer inspection and what is veiled in seduction.”
The exhibit will be on display at the North Carolina Gallery of the N.C. Museum of Art until July 28. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday and admission is free of charge. For additional information, please visit the official exhibition page.
