We are only puppets, our strings are being pulled by unknown forces. - Georg Buchner

At some point in our lives we have all been taken advantage of emotionally, physically, psychologically, or perhaps even financially. These events are painful, even devastating, and fortunately, for most of us, these encounters are infrequent. Sometimes there are relationships that unfortunately last far too long for our own well being, where we are repeatedly taken advantage of and made to feel as if we are merely puppets – controlled and manipulated. 

This painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Laura

It's the messy things in life that attract Laura Carter. In a literal sense, she enjoys making a mess with paint by using her hands and fingers in each work. She finds that most of her best work springs from difficult times. Her current work explores a range of emotions and facial expressions through portraits. In the end, she hopes that her art will look and feel like an emotional story or journey.
