Artist statement

Laura Moreton-Griffiths is interested in the politics of time and forgetting, and how modern western history uses a linear model of storytelling. Her visual art practice conflates past, present and future, to create collapsing timelines of interacting and cascading cause and effect, that draw on cultural and art-historical references, autobiographical and cultural memory. Her work often reflects the things she is opposed to and thus necessarily deals with issues of conflict and control, with wry humour. Always amazed by what we don’t know, what has been overwritten, lost, her practice attempts to fill in the gaps between known facts and fictions, and overlooked people and events at the margins of history.

Drawing, painting, objects, photography, digital collage, film and performance via a cast of characters.
