About the Artist:
Using traditional and contemporary patchwork quilt patterns, Laura Petrovich-Cheney creates complex and vibrant sculptures from debris that was collected after natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy (2013), Gatlinburg, TN Fires (2015), and a series of nor’easters that pounded the Massachusetts coastline during the winter of 2018. Her work explores issues of loss, identity, place, memory, and renewal.
