Brooklyn-based artist Lauren Luloff’s first solo show in Canada explores life through large scale paintings created by layering fabric painted in bleach and oil. Her work often relates to domestic life, with bed sheets as material, and images of vases and teapots. (Above: Francesca & Geranium – Oil, bleached bed sheets and fabric on muslin 74″ x 58″)
The physical texture of the work in conjunction with the pattern element, consummate a surreal effect, playing on the viewers perception of foreground and background. She composes organic shapes which allude to foliage through textile elements seen in microscopic plant life -Notes from the exhibition, at Cooper Cole in Toronto through May 25.
