Skin & Bone

2010

Cotton Rag paper, pins, dimensions variable.

In her series Skin & Bone, Lauren Simmonds uses cut paper, light and shadow to create deliberately ambiguous, symmetrical sculptures.

The forms in Skin & Bone take on mask-like qualities, emerging from the walls in a manner both dreamy and menacing. The artworks are informed by a number of sources, including psychological inkblot prints, symmetrical botanical structures and anatomical bone studies.
