LAUREN NAPOLITANO: +BENT TEMPLE+
jULY 6, 2018 - JULY 28, 2018
Lauren Napolitano is a traveling mixed-media artist who creates anything out of everything. Her work celebrates the handmade and the imperfections that come along with it. She is influenced by her mother’s Mexican heritage and leans heavily on her ancestors as she creates and gathers inspiration. Napolitano uses symmetry as a starting point. Any flaw is a celebration of the human hand.
“My process is incredibly analog, which has made my residency a unique learning experience. I adapted both my mental and physical process from the very moment pen hit paper...drawing in layers, with as much precision as my body allowed. I wanted to create pieces that were strong yet subtle and still feminine at their core, slowly drawing you towards them to take a deeper look at the details.”
