Laurie Hassold makes sculptures that she presents to the world as possible "future fossils"; remnants of what could be and might well be a result of the impact of our species on the planet. Fully speculative yet imbued with a reverence for Nature and its brutal force, these creatures are amoral and magnificent.

She derives inspiration from the awe-inspiring forces of nature: avalanches, earthquakes and geologic formations looming large at a scale that is clearly not human. Her sculptures examine a possible post-human evolution assembled from fossilized remains and the detritus of our disposable culture.
