Lauren Blakey

Toronto
Toronto based artist Lauren Blakey first studied at Sheridan College then completed her undergraduate studies at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Blakey’s ceramic work occupies an interesting ground within the medium. She does not define her work by typical standards of sculpture or functionality. Rather, she finds meaning in the materiality and sensuality of her particular media. She is inspired by the natural world, resulting in a powerful recitation of nature and biology throughout her work.
“I am seeking to create visual representations that convey the juxtapositions found in our natural world; ideas of growth and decay, strength and fragility.”
The surfaces of moss, lichens and algae exemplify these concepts in particular, as they are surfaces that have become blemished and worn over time exposing sediment, the past and growth.
