Lauren Matsumoto
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Gowanus

Genre:Nature;


ARTIST STATEMENT: Nature and how we relate to it is the central theme of my work. In my practice, a hybrid form of painting, drawing and collage functions as a metaphor for the continual cycle of decay and regeneration on Earth. In each painting, I carefully build its history as layers of paint, hand-drawn and printed vintage ephemera, toile, Victorian weaving patterns, barnacles, lichens, webs and other natural elements develop into an eclectic composition. Fauna and flora are protagonists interacting with what humans leave behind in the environment– ranging from a Louis XV chair to a muscle car or vintage radio. The paper scraps and fragments of what we leave behind as a civilization address the transience of our era. Old and new come together in my work, celebrating nature, memory and the cycle of life.
