Laura Moore is a contemporary artist based in Sydney. Her work pivots on a critical investigation of photography as a medium itself. Concerned with the capacity of the photographic portrait to represent complex meanings about identity and human relationships, Moore is questioning photography's position as designator of meaning. Often inspired and informed by her everyday life, observations and memory, Moore's work can hold very personal content. Yet ultimately the work expands beyond its autobiographical nature through actively inviting speculation and projection.
Currently undertaking her MFA at Sydney College of the Arts, she is also a regular exhibitor and winner of the National Portrait Gallery's 2012 Digital Portraiture Award. Moore's work has featured in a number of award exhibitions including The Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize, Sydney Life Exhibition and Prize, Art and About Sydney Festival, Josephine Ulrick and Win Schubert Photography Award, The William and Winifred Bowness Photography Prize and the Grace Cossington Smith art award. Moore has had a number of solo exhibitions including Firstdraft Gallery, Verge Gallery and Galerie Pompom in Sydney, PhotoAccess Huw Davies Gallery in Canberra and C3 Contemporary Art Space in Melbourne.
