Laura McMorrow

'Cardboard Rocks'
Museum Building, Trinity College

Found pieces of cardboard, paper and inside-out boxes are rescued from mundanity in Laura’s exquisitely detailed drawings and paintings. Colourfully painted gemstones shine out from drab grey/brown backgrounds and appear as rediscovered treasures dug out of everyday existence.

It takes some amount of exploration for the viewer to spot Laura’s piece amid the cabinets of geological samples and fossils that are dotted around the Museum Building but the viewer is ultimately rewarded for taking the time to look more closely and examine their surroundings.
