Featured Artist of The Week: Lauryn Brede

Our featured artist this week is Lauryn Brede. Brede challenges the boundaries between painting and sculpture through choice of medium, and ultimately challenges what art really is. Through abstract untitled artworks, Brede uses minimalism to break complex notions down to their simplest forms to be experienced by the viewer.

"Working in a minimalistic style my works are white because white is nothing. White eliminates any associations with reality and rejects personal expression, it is plainly blank, leaving room for the audiences our interpretation. Plaster is my dominate media, which is poured into the backs of canvases to achieve a solid object, transforming something that was once a flat surface into a single, solid form. The incorporation of the canvas surfaced, due to its traditional purpose and its high recognition of painting. The carving technique came later, the idea was to create a painting without paint and yet again I didn’t want to convey any expression or narrative and so I sat parallel with aesthetics of my own interests.

Also, you may have noticed that all my works are untitled, this was a conscious decision, removing all sense of narrative because once named the audience has an opportunity to interpret."
