Lauren Ball at Free Range Gallery
In April I photographed Lauren Ball's exhibition Old Dynamite at Free Range Gallery. Lauren Ball uses still life language as inspiration and a jumping off point to explore color and create a unique palette. Lauren likes to play between the abstract and the literal when applying color and form to her canvas. She creates still lives and uses the color in the objects to create her custom palette, which takes the shape of abstraction forms. She uses Photoshop to alter her source material and thus reflects her memory of them. The paintings and forms become color silhouettes and this adds to and creates an air of mystery and monumentality.
