Laura Greenway is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice is based around her own experiences of mental health problems and disability. She often engages in performance art or use mediums that she deems as performative, using her body as a tool of expression.
Laura’s work aims to communicate themes such as vulnerability, visibility and fragility as well as focusing on the theme of repetition, making links between the ritualistic nature of illnesses such as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and repetition as part of art. Her practice encompasses performance, print and writing to create unique art pieces often using live art to put an emphasis on the process of making and allowing her audience to witness the development of the work.
During the pandemic Laura has been experimenting with hand-printing to create works that capture the difficulties of living through a global health crisis whilst suffering from contamination based OCD.
Laura graduated in 2017 from the University for the Creative Arts with a Master’s degree in Fine Art and has exhibited all across the UK as well as internationally, winning a VeniceLands Art Prize critics award as well as the Sheroes Art prize in 2020. Laura uses her practice to crate awareness of mental illness and start a dialogue about the taboo topics that often surround psychiatric illnesses.
