Pressed aggregate will present new sculptural work and paintings by local artist Lauren Ravi. Inspired by a background in cultural materials conservation the artist often employs irrational means to better understand inner feelings of dissociation from process’ of manufacture and the built environment. Through experimentation with ancient methods of construction, the artist seeks to create objects that hold gestures, and traces in time, presenting a merging of the body, material and the environment. This exhibition will take shape as a body of concrete sculptures, ceramics and oil paintings.
Lauren Ravi is a local artist living and working in Mparntwe, Alice Springs. Since completing a Bachelor in Fine Arts with First Class Honors at The University of Western Australia in 2011 and a Masters of Cultural Materials Conservation at The University of Melbourne in 2015, the artist has exhibited and curated exhibitions in a range of institutions Australia wide. Including Watch This Space, The Honeymoon Suite, ‘Dudd Space’ at Kings ARI, Free Range Gallery, Burratti Fine Art, Cullity Gallery and King Street Studio.
