Episode 81: Laura Mosquera
Out There Atlanta is switching its focus to Atlanta transplants in the New York area. In these interviews, we aim to reestablish connections with these transplanted artists, and talk about their backgrounds, artistic journeys, and what brought them into and out of Atlanta.
Laura Mosquera is a painter who has spent significant time in Chicago, Savannah, and is now based in Brooklyn. She’s worked in art departments in the aforementioned cities and has shifted her painting practice from figurative to abstract over the years. These days she holds down a day job at Columbia University and is transitioning to life in Brooklyn. Listen to the podcast to find out more about Laura and her work.
Topics include: Excavating space through drawing and painting, working in relation to your environment, and thinking about Haruki Murakami, writing, running, and painting.
