Laura Brennan ‘Transience" at The Donna Beam Gallery of Fine Art
FIELD NOTES: For three years Laura Brennan has navigated science and art as fluid realms so her photography can explore how, if at all, memory can be represented through experimental photography. Her thesis exhibition, titled ‘Transience,” encompasses large print, mostly monochrome, that regard how recollection of past experience can be an visual abstraction; ways memories can be represented through photography with accuracy. Like her personality, "Transience" is a quiet inquisition, as Brennan is an artist who also thinks as a scientist. After the bluster and boisterous visual canon of her male MFA colleagues, Brennan allows the UNLV class of 2018 to take a final dignified bow that balanced with emotion and logic.
