ON THE ARTWORK: - "A wrapping helix of interconnected prismatic panels, dense with layers of screen-printing, drawn and painted images, and stitching, is activated with a LIFX lighting motherboard. As an environment, it resembles a fantastic dream, luminous and alive..." (Shana Nys Dambrot, LA Weekly) - "Viewers slip off their shoes to enter the space, evoking the sensation of entering both fairyland and sacred chamber. There are elements of the fairytale here – a visionary, female-conceived version of the genii’s cave in Aladdin or the magic treasure cave in Ali Baba and The Forty Thieves – in Shapiro’s installation; also significant are elements of personal and spiritual sanctity.“ (Genie Davis, Artillery Magazine ) - Stepping into Laurie Shapiro’s latest art immersive, Alchemy Tunnel, feels like time has stopped in that moment. Before you’ve had a chance to look around, you already feel different. Instantly you’ve become centered.
