Front Room Gallery | Laura O’Connor | Little Fears
Laura O’Conner uses a variety of mediums including but not limited to, photo-illustrations, photography, and fibre art.
“Little Fears” is a personal exploration of the fixations that O’Conner has become the source of her own measures of unease. Ranging from clowns and dentists to detached retinas and hoarding, these pieces represent the personal demons that she has developed through her life experience. She explores the fears that she has conquered but most that are ongoing. By sharing this personal exploration of fear, a light-hearted and positive discourse with the viewer is established, encouraging an empathetic reaction to the recognition of their own anxieties as being significant part of their own emotional maturation.
