Laurence assembles objets trouvés to celebrate vintage product design, in doing so creating an archive of objects that fashioned our past. Model cars are tokens of playtime. Cameras are troves of captured moments. The eras these objects belong to and our idiosyncratic reactions to them often induce a palpable sense of nostalgia.

During the assemblage construction Laurence’s unique visual sensibility pursues a mesmeric aesthetic, which aims to capture and captivate through the juxtaposition of line, material, tone, colour, function and context.
