Lauren Ari


Lauren Ari begins with an original page removed from a 1914 Funk and Wagnell's dictionary as the base for her whimsical paintings. Not satisfied with the definitions at their face value, Ari conjures multi-dimensional tableaux, reminding us that language, both verbal and visual, interact in an ever evolving relationship. Ari pulls images, meanings, inspirations and symbolic gravity from the pages to create wild, playful, dark and visionary paintings. Lauren received her MFA from UC Davis.
