Laurel Pehmoeller is a video artist and filmmaker from central Connecticut. Her work explores the varied ways in which the genres of moving image, from documentary to experimental, can overlap and intersect. Themes of feminism, the male gaze, and self-determination are the backbone of her traditional narrative work as well as her video art.
Laurel earned her BFA in Studio Art at the University of Connecticut, studying sculpture while pursuing studies in video art, and also studied at the Institute of Palazzo Rucellai in Florence Italy. Her undergraduate work culminated in a performative video art series, titled Ladylike, which cemented her love for the art of filmmaking and performative video art. Laurel returned to the University of Connecticut to pursue her Master of Fine Arts degree in the Department of Digital Media Design, in order to explore traditional filmmaking and storytelling.
