Laura Kimpton  

Laura Kimpton’s work concerns itself most of all with issues of freedom.  She challenges
stereotypes and any efforts to constrain or pass judgment.  Kimpton recycles images and memorabilia from the past in encaustic and collage to communicate to and about her culture.  By using recycled materials in her work, Kimpton says she is able to start with a history and personality that helps guide where the work is going.
   Laura Kimpton investigates the personal and universal aspects of the self. Often employing encaustic wax to mold, paint, and encase ideas and things, Kimpton's paintings and assemblages are packed with historical markers and language. Words like "me", "you", "we" embedded in the works act not only as wordplay but also as a mantra to encourage the viewer to experience the self and its subsequent dissolution.
  Laura collaborated with Bob Hofmann and husband Jeff Schomberg to create “Celtic Forest”, a multimedia “temple” containing Flaming trees and fire moat and winged figure.  The artists were given and grant by Burning Man to create this unique art experience. 


Kimpton received a BA in Art Education from the University of Iowa, a BFA in Photography from The San Francisco Art Institute, and an MA in Counseling Psychology at The University of San Francisco.
