Gallery Atomic Salon

By Laura Honse

Laura Honse is an American artist who grew up overseas. She returned to the US when she was 17 to study at the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts. She then lived and worked in New York, San Francisco, Barcelona and Hamburg. In Hamburg, she worked on various installation teams at the main museums, sometimes as private assistant to internationally renowned artists, such as Jean-Jacques Lebel and Jason Rhoades, before opening Gallery Atomic Salon as an exhibition space for her photography. In 2010, the gallery closed due to building renovation, and she relocated to Mexico. After a spell in Oaxaca and Mexico City, she now lives in San Miguel de Allende and has reopened Gallery Atomic Salon in her studio next to her home in Santa Julia. She presents more than 70 of her framed photographs and also some of her collage and jewelry in two rooms within a peaceful courtyard. Due to the distance of the gallery from the center of town it is open by appointment only.

Laura Honse has exhibited internationally, including in Europe, Japan and Mexico. She will have a solo exhibition this October at El Negromante Bellas Artes in San Miguel de Allende, her third show here since she arrived a year ago. She works in analog format as well as digital and in color as well as black and white, concentrating on unconventional portraits. She is not a studio photographer, preferring to invest time in the people she photographs and choosing a landscape in which to integrate them. Neither does she use Photoshop as a means of enhancement. Her work is intensely personal, transgressive and sensual. For her, the camera is a vehicle with which to introduce herself into the lives of people with whom she might otherwise have contact and to build this contact into an intimate relationship. The photograph then becomes almost secondary.
