Professor of Printmaking Laura Bigger has been selected as one of the Missouri Artists of the Month by the Missouri Arts Council. In her artist’s statement she writes:
My work explores the relationships that exist among humans, animals, and ecosystems, particularly in terms of the food chain, raw materials, and the human tendency to exert control over natural systems. My art considers existential quandaries such as what it means to be a human today, how we can live in the world responsibly, and what our obligation is to do so. As a multimedia artist, I question anthropocentric viewpoints and interpret the manmade environment primarily through print, drawing, and installation.
