About

Laura Schiff Bean is best known for her dress “portraits” painted with many layers of thick dripping paint. Illuminated gowns float on monochromatic backgrounds often peppered with drips, text, graffiti or butterflies. Using the dress as a metaphor, her paintings reflect on identity and gender and how we define ourselves by the clothing we wear. At the School of The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Bean began to incorporate her interest in human nature with her art. Ideas of memory, dreams, and subconscious thought and physical presence all permeate her work. “…this ball gown is a feminine counterpoint to the freestanding bathrobes suavely posed by Jim Dine […]. Bean’s gown has an imaginative force and elusive presence all its own: it creates a decorative and decorous ruckus with exquisite drawing and a concert of memories”. - Artscope Magazine
