Lauren Seiden

lauren seiden

The work of New York-based artist Lauren Seiden.

My work explores the essential elements of process and materiality through an intuitive and intimate layering of graphite; testing the conventions of drawing by breaking down the surface and transforming these materials into a physical, textural and structural form.  My paper works are situated not as a medium of preparation or provision, but as a final form displayed on wooden stretcher bars; further expanding upon the notion of drawing as painting and painting as sculpture. [...] As with the paper, my interest with thread and steel is to push beyond the limits inherent in the material’s natural state. Graphite still pervades every surface, coating the thread, and delicately spanning the webs of steel mesh.
