What’s On Your Wall?: Laura Berger, Artist

Welcome to What’s On Your Wall?, an ongoing series exploring the domestic spaces of the artists that inspire us. (But mostly, it’s our excuse to sneak a peek into the homes and studios of some of our favorite creative people.)

Laura Berger’s quirky human characters wander the world she’s created for them in nothing but their birthday suits. Whether they’re participating in unknown rituals, tossing each other with blanket canopies, or slouching on abstract triangles, there really seems to be no limit to what these enigmatic characters can do in Laura’s universe. The collection of artwork that decorates Laura’s home have a similarly limitless quality, too – collected from all over the world, it’s a little peek into Laura’s life as part-artist, part-globetrotter.
