About Laurinda


Laurinda Stockwell grew up on an Ohio pig farm roaming its 200 acres. Heavily Influenced by this childhood environment as well as a family filled with artists, she makes artwork based upon the natural world. She received her BFA from the Columbus College of Art and Design, studied at Kenyon College, and received an MFA from Tyler School of Art.


Stockwell exhibits nationally and internationally including exhibits in China, Japan and Russia as well as California, Montana, New Mexico, Florida and Colorado. She has exhibited extensively in New Jersey and New York including one-person exhibits in museums and galleries. Stockwell’s art is included in many private and public collections including commissioned permanent site-specific photographic and glass installations for New Jersey Transit, Hamilton Park Square in Jersey City and Atlanticare Hospital in Atlantic City and Rutgers University. Stockwell’s exhibits have been reviewed in the New York Times as well as other national and regional publications. She has received numerous awards including two NJ State Artist Fellowships, a Yaddo Residency, a Wurlitzer Residency in Taos, NM, two awards from the National Association of Women Artists in New York City, a Ford Foundation scholarship, a Fulbright Memorial Foundation travel grant to Japan and a Pingry Enrichment Grant for travel to Alaska. She lives and works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. 


Artist’s Statement


Specific objects seemed charged with meaning and by combining them I make a photographic narrative. By arranging these objects together they often become landscape to me. Chosen objects evoke an emotional power and I arrange and photograph them to suggest a story. I’m particularly interested in the push and pull between humans and the natural world. It’s always a power struggle between the desire to make our own destiny and the overwhelming power of climate and other natural forces. I print these images on a metallic surface to suggest the 19th century historic processes such as tintypes and daguerreotypes. My prints become objects themselves with this luminous material and are informed by early photography as well as 19th century interests in natural history and Darwin’s theories of evolution.
