In Laura Peirano´s home even the most humble of things is given a value
When Laura Peirano decided to change her life and move from the city of Buenos Aires to an island in the Delta region of Argentina, she found the perfect enclave to embrace her unique style. A humble timber cottage by the river, surrounded by a romantic garden, became the canvas for her many creative ideas. A woman of many talents, Laura learned the art of self-sufficiency very early on when her mother would encourage her to create whatever it was she wanted and did not have. This creativity is reflected everywhere in her home. She is not afraid to try and fail since, for her, mistakes are just part of the creative process and ‘perfection’ is a dirty word.
She also treasures objects regardless of their value or condition. She also makes things.
It’s clear that Laura’s unique style does not follow trends and is not concerned with consumerism. It is as if she were trying to rescue the flotsam and jetsam of life and give it a second chance.
The past, represented in old postcards, prints and faded photos, are sources of inspiration for her experimentation to create scenes that tell their own stories. Even when tasks are difficult, as when the garden becomes muddy and windy, she believes nature must follow its course. As she explains, “I learned to live in the cycle of nature, to be part of nature and to value and rescue everything that can be in danger and to not endanger anything because there is a reason why everything exists and needs to be respected, admired and shared.”
