ABOUT


Born 1999 in Dumfries, Scotland Currently resides in South London.


Lauren is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice rotates from photography, moving image, physical and digital collage. Through her surrealist depictions of the female form, she challenges the relentless western representation of the female seen in historic and contemporary culture. As well as examining female relationships with the misrepresentation of women in societal institutions, her work also explores the relationships women obtain with themselves and non-human nature.
