About Laurie Sheridan
The Florida Trailer Park Series depicts the friends, living units and pets of those I share my winter time with. I consider it a precious space. It is one of the few spaces that remain in the town since my days of high school. Old Florida is a destination for me; I look for vestiges of a time gone by, before upgrades, money and massive tourist influx.
I welcome the stigma against these places; they do not conform to the preferences of the moneyed class, and so are largely ignored. The people there have created a community of caring that I have never shared with neighbors before. This is largely due to the intimacy of the living arrangement, and to the attitude of the people. The prints are each unique, in semi-faded black and white to capture the nostalgia I feel.
My Anxious Pupa piece embodies the anxiety I feel on a personal level about what is happening in the natural world right now. Overly large, it seems to be vibrating with the new frequencies that are controlling it, preparing it for bursting forth with a larger role in the world.
