Lauren's current collection of work started with a test: how can light metamorphose materials? What might evolve if the materials themselves changed consistency? Wax was found to produce unpredictable projected environments, characterised by a rich dialogue between form and matter. Through drawing, the Artist began to isolate and document shapes within these environments. Then, through traditional methods of hand carving, her drawings were translated back into three dimensions. The final, sculptural products contain traces of this forced progression from ephemeral environment to permanent structure and are descriptive of the absent, evolving spaces that produced them.

Her projects have included six-months at the Cass Faculty of Art in association with Whitechapel Gallery, charitable exhibitions at various London Galleries in collaboration with Parkinson’s UK and a debut solo show at the Winchester Gallery.
