Most of the time, we never seem to think about what is happening beneath our feet. When we visited Yellowstone this summer, we couldn’t help but be confronted by the reality of what is going on beneath the earth’s surface. The countless hot springs, geysers and mudpots reminded us that our planet is on fire underneath us. New York artist Laura Moriarty‘s unique sculptural paintings are her own interpretations of what is happening beneath our terrain.
Her layers of liquid color mimic the stratifications in the earth’s core, flowing in and around each other like lava.
