“In my new 'Arcs' series, I scanned my own painted brushstrokes and laser-carved these into small wooden panels. After gluing and pressing these panels into layered three-dimensional forms, I paint each form using acrylic paint. The ‘Arcs’ capture my hand through multiple layers and processes, and especially my enthusiasm for hand-mixed color. Each piece becomes its own character that tells a unique story of shape, color and form, through the lens of my creative process.” — Laura Berman
