‍Her exhibition at Frisiersalon Linz ( the concept is a window shopper exhibition) ,  entitled "Hunzi&Benzi" and the Solo Show, whimsically titled "Haben Sie Diesen Hund Gesehen (Have you seen this dog?)," was a standout event at Kunst im Bad Linz.

Laura's art practice is a colorful tapestry of media and techniques, spanning stunning paintings, intricate drawings, textile works, and sculptures. 

Her large-scale installations, reminiscent of toylike dollhouses and plasticine figurative settings, are a testament to her imaginative prowess. 

In her art, animals frequently serve as substitutes for humans, or she explores the complex relationships between animals and humans in a manner that is both characterful and socio-politically charged.

‍Her works create an enchanting universe where extended limbs, anthropomorphic creatures, and surreal scenarios converge. 

This unique blend invites viewers into a world where the extraordinary becomes the norm, and the line between reality and fantasy blurs.
