  • Notes: Laurie Yehia's formal language includes objects that retain traces of functionality while remaining open to re-interpretation. Elements are ordered to achieve a vibrant stillness in complexity. Her switch plates allude to the ability to see possibilities and connections, and to harmonize or 'switch" conditions through construction of inner and outer worlds. Yehia's artwork has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is held in private and public collections. Her art studies were focused on painting and printmaking at the Art Institute of Chicago, Stanford University, Wesleyan University and the Tom Wudl Studio (Los Angeles Arts District.) Yehia currently is a member of the Santa Monica Arts Commission and its Media Arts Committee, and she chairs its Public Art Committee.
