lauren black, northwest painterI started painting after finishing a career as a classical dancer. I have been painting for 15 years. I received my BFA with a major in painting at Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland Oregon. I can get lost in the process of creating something different and unique, I love to paint, experiment, and play, washing out, scratching and distressing the surfaces of the work. I have been drawn more and more to mixed media, using paper and other mediums to create depth and interest. Five paintings from this latest series were recently purchased and hung in the lobby of the historic Henry Weinhard building in the Pearl District of Portland Oregon. I have had numerous solo shows and have been featured in several galleries here in Portland.

This series was inspired by a close up photo I found of an "eye" on a moth wing, it was decayed and organicyet beautiful and alive. The wing was a translucent green. I then went to the library to find more photos and was once again made to feel as small as who I am in the scheme of things, my creativity bows to the world about me. I work on wood panel which I coat with dress pattern paper. I then lay down textured paper coating it with a rust medium. I layer acrylic paint until I have the color the way I want it. The high gloss finish medium is then applied which separates the layers of paint which adds to the depth that I am continually exploring and creating. I would hope that this series sparks a dialogue within ourselves to explore our relationship to the natural world and it's laws.
