Critique Lauren's Art
ARTIST BIO
Lauren Cutler is a mixed media artist focusing heavily on collage and large abstract contemporary paintings. Ripping and cutting up anything printed, she creates extremely detailed mixed media mélanges boasting a diversity of vivid colors and veiled themes. Mixing reality with fantasy her work depicts a surreal version of objects, people and places. Many of her collages send a subliminal message to the viewer, often difficult to decipher without hints from the artist’s other works and recurring themes. Her acrylic abstract paintings are massive and vibrant, and take her art in a different direction from her collages. Omitting meticulous detail present in her collage work, her paintings emphasize color contrasts and concentrate on singular dominating symbols and patterns. Lauren received her undergraduate degree from Oneonta State University and holds a Masters in Education from Wagner College on Staten Island where she taught High School English for nearly a decade, hating every minute. Desperate for a change, and three credits shy of a second Masters, she moved to Rio de Janeiro where she lived as a local, immersing herself into the everyday culture, which proved to be quite dangerous, but worth the experience, she says. She returned to New York and spent the next eight years hating every job she had. When she saw a neighbor who was moving out throw away a large canvas, she took it. Three hours later she’d created her first piece of art. STATEMENT I love architecture from different cultures, often combining medieval European arches and colorful Latin American infrastructures with just the right amount of gra ti and litter of a New York City street. I usually begin from the center working my way outwards until I’ve reached each corner. I thrive on the challenge of making it balance out somehow while maintaining an intentional unevenness. The end product is an almost other-worldly combination of each culture. These pieces take me away to the place I am trying to depict, however unrealistic some may turn out. Creating art has given me a sense of peace, strength and con dence that I’d never known before. I am driven by not only an insane need to create but the knowledge that I am incapable of living a normal life.
