Laura Schiff Bean is best known for her dress “portraits” painted with many layers of thick dripping paint. Illuminated gowns float on monochromatic backgrounds often peppered with drips, text, graffiti or butterflies. Using the dress as a metaphor, her paintings reflect on identity and gender and how we define ourselves by the clothing we wear. Ideas of memory, dreams, and subconscious thought and physical presence all permeate her work.
