Christine Laffer

"The Weight of Lucidity"

Christine Laffer began her studies in architecture in 1969 at the University of Illinois in Chicago. After discovering textiles she moved to the San Francisco Bay area, where she studied tapestry under Jean Pierre Larochette and Yael Lurie. Christine has a MFA in Spatial Arts from San José State University.

Tapestry continues to be her medium of choice, as she develops a conceptual meld of bas-relief sculptural form and mute image. Occasionally she combines these forms with cloth, found objects, drawing, or prints.
