LAUREN LAKE / STATEMENT 
My artwork borrows the grammar of botany, garden architecture, and agriculture to create artworks that inspire saudade, a nostalgic longing to be near again to someone or something that has become distant or has been loved and then lost. Autobiographical in origin, my works’ scale, material, and manner of installation establish and maintain an intimacy with the viewer through communitas.
