lauren mabry's cylinders.

studio artist lauren mabry is creating some pretty amazing cylinders, in philadelphia...
on lauren's statement pages she expresses her work this way: "i make painterly, abstract, ceramic objects." and "sometimes the surfaces look weathered and aged, but at the same time colorfully lush and wet."

lauren admits that she is drawn to the sense of immediacy in her mark making, "and at moments a quality of action." the absence of representation in her work, as lauren states, allows for the brush strokes to shine,the drips and color palette to be very forward, present and part of the landscape of these cylinders.

i would not put anything in these, i would only be able to enjoy these for what they truly are...three dimensional abstract paintings. at least that's how i see them. enjoy...
