Lives and works in Philadelphia, PA
Laura Sallade lives and works in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The artist completed her Certificate in Sculpture from the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 2014. Since then, she has participated in numerous exhibitions both in Philadelphia and New York. Along with these exhibitions, the artist has completed commissions for Ritz Carlton, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Anthropologie Clothing Stores, and for the Dualtone Music Group in Nashville, TN. Her work is held in numerous private collections.
Sallade’s glass works explore the presence and absence of light. Through the use of controlled chemical reaction and manipulation of multiple materials the artist creates multi-dimensional glass “paintings”. The use of negative space and her distinct style of “drawing” with light create a multi-layered surface. Despite using only two panels of glass, each work achieves intense depth and allows the viewer to meditate and reflect.
