Lauren explains her work by saying, “In a distant century, a man named Job asked, “What is man…that You should set Your heart on him?” Today my paintings repeat that very same question. My figurative and landscape paintings explore the tension between the corporeal and spiritual; the place where God reaches his hand to Adam. I prioritize the depiction of light which creates the illusion of three dimensional form. This foundation allows for exploration in narratives surrounding the concept of man’s relationship to God. Together my paintings depict the tension between devastation and the possibility of renewal.”
