Lauren Curtis, Franklin Park, NJ, USA Member Since September 2006 Artist Statement Lauren Curtis was graduated with a BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, in 1988. She enjoys working in a variety of media, including oils, acrylics, pen & ink, watercolor, Photoshop and photography. Lauren is happiest when creating art that represents her love of nature, wildlife, and spiritual subject matter. The symbology and mythology of ancient cultures such as Egyptian, Greco-Roman and Celtic are fused with the symbols of modern -day, natural spiritual systems, to form a unique and eclectic style. These images are often portrayed through the woman’s perspective, showing the importance of “The Feminine” , which is often over-looked. Lauren wants to convey the beauty in the diversity, as well as the similarities that run through various cultural belief-systems. The artist has also been commissioned for graphic design projects by publishers, musicians, businesses, authors and craft companies.
Lauren has had artwork and poetry published by national magazines, greeting card and crafter companies, as well as historical organizations, including the Middlesex County Cultural & Heritage Commission. She has participated in over 95 solo, group and juried exhibitions, including a solo show at Johnson & Johnson World Headquarters (2009). The artist is a member of several NJ Arts organizations, has been featured on TV shows & radio interviews, and her work has been sold throughout the US and abroad. Her artwork can currently be seen in many venues in NJ, NY, MA and PA. website: http://www.LaurenCurtisArt.com
