Collecting materials comes naturally to Lauren Goding. She collects natural and reclaimed materials that are hand-picked for their tactile and aesthetic qualities. She then transforms these objects into prints, sculptures, and installations that invite the viewers to explore, experience, and wonder. She uses a color scheme inspired by the natural world alongside metallic elements that brings cohesion to the many textures and forms her work takes. Her materials are inspired by what humans have been working and making with for thousands of years: fabric, paper, dyes, wood, metal, etc. With these materials, she creates work that is experiential for viewers, who move through, around, and into her work. The work creates a space for connection to the deeply human elements inside us all.
Lauren works out of her home studio in Oregon City, Oregon.
