Lauren Feece has been making things to look at since she was a little tiny girl. After a childhood creating and an adolescence of art, she decided being an artist was the only career that wouldn’t make her a sad, mean person. While working toward a Bachelors degree in fine art she began to exhibit her work. After finishing her degree she moved to Chicago in 2002 and began a rigorous exhibition schedule. She has enjoyed several solo exhibitions, including ‘For the Birds’ at Gallery 645, ‘In Bloom’ at Hotcakes Gallery in Milwaukee, and ‘Blossom’ at the Lobby Gallery in Chicago. Often Lauren’s work has focused on the snapshot; how a snapshot, an unpretentious mirror of reality, can be translated into the iconographic language of painting. At times her work focuses more on her own response to photographs or contemplations on the reality of time and space. Whatever the subject of her work, she muses on the everyday, its supposed monotony and the layers of meaning and beauty buried below the surface.
