‘Self Portrait With Melon’ Overwintering series by Lauren Bryden
Lauren Bryden is an artist-maker from Glasgow. Lauren’s paintings and textile works are an intimate reflection of everyday life as a mother, often exploring the beauty and loss of growing and the process of matrescence, through an innocent gaze.
Overwintering is an ongoing series that moves beyond personal experience to embrace the varied and diverse experience of family and friends, exploring the closeness and distance between us as a means of finding connection in our solitary journeys, while reflecting on the periods of dormancy and nurturing before the ‘spring’ arrives.
Original Monotype Paintings on 300 gsm cotton rag.
