Lauren Tucci's new works entitled ‘Objects for Cinema: Act 1’
Artist Statement: Inspired by artists of the Surrealist and Symbolist movements, my art originates from personal experience in connection to fictional universes. It stems from perceived realities in relation to how we derive meaning through everyday interpreted symbolism and subconscious thoughts rooted as deeply as one’s dream state. This body of work objectifies personal emotions and conditions in the form of recognisable imagery, sometimes disjunctive or mise en scène. Framed instances in installations become linked chaos, much like dreams in a non-linear narrative.
I sculpt human and non-human fragments in delicate and callous themes to converse with our psyche, an approach to conflict and relationships. Social status and contemporary themes of power and insecurities are illustrated without a demographic definition. I seek to remove conventional understandings of one’s self and explore a discussion about personality purely through the imagery we define as a community.
