Hello folks, my name is Lauren, I  am a MFA student at Ulster University studying Fine Art. I have a First Class Honours BA in fine art. My speciality is in painting, my practice lies between the figurative and the abstract. I am intrigued in capturing the subtle figure in my work, looking at the essence and meaning of the painting. My Personal work looks at ideas of the sublime. Therefore, a lot of my work is based on faith and is inspired by the word of the Bible.

Artist Statement 

The sublime is the central motif of my practice. My practice's intent is to attempt to create a cognitive viewing experience which stimulates thoughts and interpretations of the divine. I focus on creation and the idea that the sublime can be conveyed through nature and capturing the essence of it through paint.

My process of painting relies upon chance, I have developed a mixed medium practice and process which involves pouring inks, acrylics and oil-based paints. My hands on and off approach removing the brush captures a spontaneity and energy which creates gestural and fluid marks that only nature can imitate.  

I am creating a new dialogue with surface contextually and aesthetically through the process of layering; forging textile aspects with the paint that reject the fluid depth produced through pouring which creates a juxtaposition. Contextually the paintings present the surface of the earth in a much more material way; it deals with landscape in a less pictorial form capturing a presence of landscape.

I believe that art has the power to expose or present universal truths to a viewer. I hope my paintings capture that balance of living and majesty were serenity, purpose and self-awareness can be found.
