As Coronavirus swept the world and the whole of the UK went into lockdown, artists around the world were responding to the global pandemic the only way they knew how. Ways in working, especially for performance based artists were challenged, and this time has been especially difficult for Laura due to already having severe contamination based OCD. During the pandemic she began experimenting with hand-printing to create works that capture the difficulties of living through a global health crisis whilst suffering from contamination based OCD, as well as using photography to continue involving her body in her practice. A selection of works made during the pandemic and the UK lockdown can be found in this gallery.
