“There’s more than meets the eye.”

So often we come across a multitude of things that are more complex than we’ll ever really know. Just being alive means acknowledging the seen and at times having to trust in the unseen. What is visible is not always the full picture, and to explore that in my pieces has been a challenging new perspective to my craft. It can be hard to cover up or let fade away a part of the creation, and yet the work can become richer through layers and layers of this process. My hope is that the layers, beyond being seen, would be experienced in full.

To Crown the Rainbow
New works by Lauren Britton

Exhibition Dates: August 28 – October 19 2014
Reception: Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Lauren Britton’s art explores the queer experience using icons and signifiers. Britton investigates the rainbow as a problematic signifier in culture. The rainbow is problematic because it is a shifter, signifying differently depending on its context. In the context of Christianity, the rainbow is a foreign signifier – here Britton juxtaposes the rainbow and elements from Christian Icon painting to posit religion and queerness in tandem. There is a strong relationship between Christian religious celebration and the kind of cultural celebration queer people have experienced as of late. Britton finds celebration as a starting point for these works. Exploring both the occult and the transcendent these works marry the divine with the base.
