through the green fuse is the first solo exhibition by self-taught, Washington DC-based artist Laura Read. Working with a variety of media—wood, vintage photographs, fabric, found and natural objects—to create collages, assemblages and photo-montages, Read builds two- and three-dimensional compositions that are forms of renewal, using discarded fragments to illustrate the creative vitality and biological energy of life's untiring movement onward.
