Dither That Dogs
Opening reception: Friday, May 19th 7 – 11 p.m.
Lauren's sculptural forms are based on depictions of sheets of paper in genre paintings & capriccio ruins in prints. The connection between these subjects is a fantasy driven depiction, one being of the everyday / "real" and the other imaginative reality of histories projected onto decaying architecture. The work has familiar and unfamiliar feeling elements, with the surface design of the objects obfuscating & complicating the viewer's relationship to these forms and the interaction between objects.
Lauren Pakradooni holds an MFA in printmaking from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a BA from Hampshire College, She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA.
