Laura Fayer is an abstract painter living and working in New York City. “My work is influenced by living in Japan as a small child and experiencing the Japanese tradition of wabi-sabi, which is defined by impermanence, imperfection, visual economy and intimacy. As a painter, I participate in a delicate balancing act between creating something complete and ordered and leaving just enough imbalance and disorder to allow for movement, rhythm, and ambiguity.” Fayer is a fellow of the MacDowell Colony and a grant recipient of the Pollock-Krasner Foundation. She has exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally. Read more.
