Anywhere But Here: A Love Letter to Escapism featuring Laura Kicey
Opening Reception: Friday, November 4th, 6-10pm
Open Hours: Saturdays 1-5pm

Gravy Studio & Gallery is proud to present Anywhere But Here: A Love Letter to Escapism, by photographer Laura Kicey. In Anywhere But Here, Kicey searches for connection in her surroundings both near and far. “Wherever I happen to find myself—be it a stretch of road I’ve been down many times, or a place I never dreamed could exist—I try to view my surroundings with soft eyes, greeting everything with possibility,” says Kicey.

Please join us at the opening reception on November 4th from 6pm to 10pm.

Laura Kicey, Artist Statement:

In my travels near and distant, the making of photographs for me is, in essence, the creation of a map of all the things I find wondrous, terrifying and bizarre. My efforts are equal parts documentation, emotional reaction, and an attempt to make sense of the history of the things before me for which there are rarely answers. Through photography, I examine the way man and nature collide and alter each other’s courses. I seek out places that have been forsaken and slowly reclaimed by nature as well as those he has never able to tame. These opposing forces are in constant flux and my photographs capture this tension, simultaneously seeing parts of the past and a glimpse of the future where mankind has been edged out.

Laura Kicey is a photographer and artist based just outside of Philadelphia, PA. Kicey’s education in graphic design and black and white film photography helped instill a strong sense of concept, composition and use of color which informs her current work. Her art has been shown in a number of galleries and museums regionally, as well as having been in numerous private collections and publications internationally.
