Laurinda Stockwell was using one of our oldest templates, which was not mobile-friendly and didn’t show off her intriguing work as well as it could have. Her work is so immediate and strong that it didn’t require too many bells and whistles, but I wanted a color that complemented it rather than detracted from it. Her work deals with a lot of natural subjects and features a lot of greens and blues, so I ended up with this sort of burlap-and-linen combination that I hope is elegant without calling too much attention to itself. I chose one of our newer fonts for the name of her site, and made it much bigger. I also added a home page to her site, choosing an image that seems to invite the viewer into the site.

I love your Flood of Memory series. It’s so dreamlike and evocative, and the figures seem so beautifully vulnerable and untouched. Can you speak a little about your inspiration for the series? Are these places that you’ve visited in your travels or your dreams?
Flood of Memory came, like the title implies, all of a sudden with a very powerful half-conscious vision, and has evolved from that initial fissure into the tension between body and deconstructed environment that it is now. For me, everything is about the body because I very much insist that as human beings we must contemplate the mystery of our existence, particularly our corporeal selves, in order to transcend. The title comes from Proust, who is one of the most painterly writers and a gifted seer.
