About the artwork
To help support our organisation during this period, we have released a special selection of previously sold out editions from the House of Voltaire archive. With exclusive works from a number of international artists, this is the final time that these editions will be available to purchase. Studio Voltaire is a registered arts and education charity with all sales directly supporting our exhibition, learning and studio programmes.
British artist Laura Aldridge often uses tactile materials and imagery that are heavily desirable to the viewer, heightening ones desire to touch. In this colourful print, the artist uses an image of her own beloved cat ‘Pom Pom’ set across a tie dyed background emblazoned with the word ‘LOVE’.
About the artist
Laura Aldridge’s work moves freely between wall-based reliefs and sculptural installations, playing on the abilities of ‘collage’ to operate in two and three-dimensions. Her works use fabric, images (both photographic and silk-screened) and found objects to create installations that the artist describes as ‘expanded collage’. She often arranges elements of her works upon tables, low plinths or across gallery walls to bring ‘things’ together so that they might coalesce as a whole.
