Lauren Comito
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: I make paintings, drawings, prints and 3D models that present as totemic figures, maps of unknown places and futuristic structures. Through my work, I envision a world in which the byproducts of consumerism become a site for reclamation and reinvention. I consider the ways that consumer waste builds on a shared (universal) visual language that is mimetic in nature and transcends geographic location. The imagery found within my work is derived from consumer waste. Cardboard packaging has recently played an important role in the making of my work. In my various art-making processes, these transient objects go through a life cycle that occupy different categories: muse, subject, tool and art object. The object is treated as both an archetype and a building block.
