100 Colorado Creatives: Laura Shill

#54: Laura Shill

Laura Shill calls her work "a collision of collecting, costuming, performance, installation and photography," and as you might expect, it's always intriguing: The many-faceted artist, currently a studio resident at RedLine, is known of late for labor-intensive stuffed fiber installations that envelope and shelter the viewer with literal arms and a hyper-feminine pulse...but that's not all she does.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
