Laura Pugno's works are an invitation to enter the landscape, delving into an analysis of the blurring boundaries between humans and nature, prompting contemplation on the landscape as an extension of the knowable or as its boundary. Her artistic practice is process-oriented and involves direct engagement with nature and its elements, she works with diverse media and materials including drawing, photography, sculpture, and video. The environmental and ecological themes - focus of her artistic investigation - are explored through the interaction between art and science, a dialogue that has become essential for her in recent years.
