- M.F.A., Printmaking, RISD
Laura Post interrogates identity and familial interaction through two and three-dimensional print portraiture built upon traditional processes. She earned a BA from Swarthmore College in Studio Art and Asian Studies, and an MFA from Rhode Island School of Design in Printmaking. She has a keen interest in traditional tools and working methods as a means to convey contemporary subject matter. Most recently, she apprenticed at Rongbaozhai in Beijing, China, to master traditional Chinese woodblock printing and studied papermaking at Awagami Factory in Tokushima, Japan. Post has demonstrated these processes as a guest artist for workshops and conferences at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, and other institutions. Her work has been featured in numerous exhibitions; including, The Art of Paper: 7th Annual Juried Exhibition at the A.D. Gallery of University of North Carolina, Pembroke, New Prints – Winter 2016 at the International Print Center New York, and Go Figure at the Dorrance H. Hamilton Gallery of Salve Regina University, Newport.
