ROSEMARY LAING

born 1959 in Brisbane, lives in Sydney

Rosemary Laing is internationally recognised as a leader in the field of concept-based photo media.

Trained as a painter, Laing has explored conceptually based photography and performance since the 1980s. Laing's work is all about dramatisation, using people, props and stunts to create miniperformances in which the landscape symbolises something other than the "usual". From these elements Laing crafts beautiful, hyperreal images that seem impossible.

Laing has exhibited extensively in Australia and her international profile and reputation have become firmly established with shows across the United States, Europe and Asia. Her work was shown among others at North Carolina Museum of Art, Worcester Art Museum, Centro de Fotografia Salamanca, Spain, the Frist Center for the Visual Arts, Nashville, at the MCA, Sydney and Kunstmuseum Bonn, Germany. In 2007 she was selected to show at the Venice Biennale as part of the exhibition Think with the Senses - Feel with the Mind. Art in the Present Tense curated by Robert Storr.
