Laura Youngson Coll

Haeckel II, Laura Youngson Coll, 2015.

Laura Youngson Coll works primarily in vellum, manipulating the material to create arresting examinations of the natural world. Her intricately formed artworks lie somewhere between fiction and fact, as she seeks to articulate the often overlooked details of our environment. After years of training in leatherwork she has developed a high level of technical and material knowledge, mastering traditional skills that now give life to her enigmatic sculptures. In 2014 Youngson Coll was awarded the Perrier-Jouët Arts Salon Prize, and has been selected for the Jerwood Makers Open 2017.
