The relationship between drawing, space and landscape is one of the most important research subjects in Laura’s work. In her latest projects, she have been working with the idea of constructed, displaced and imaginary landscapes considering its broader concept:

"Landscape is the image resulting from the synthesis of all the elements present in a certain place." 
"Landscape is a territorial space covered by the look." 
"The landscape is a tangible result of all processes, both natural and humanized in a certain location.”
