Laurence bio pic

Born 1947, Sydney, Australia. Janet Laurence is a leading Sydney-based artist whose practice examines our physical, cultural, and conflicting relationship to the natural world. She creates immersive environments that navigate the interconnections between systems of nature. Within the recognised threat of climate change, she explores what it might mean to heal the natural environment and fuses this with a sense of communal loss and search for connection with powerful life-forces. Laurence is an award-winning artist and Adjunct Professor NSW University Faculty of Art and Design. She has been exhibiting nationally and internationally for over 50 years and her work is held within major public and private collections.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
