THE ART OF LAUREN SCANLON

PAPER CANDY: These beautiful cut outs were made by Lauren Scanlon out of some romance novels she was reading at the age of ten. What an incredible patience! Not only these magnificent papercut works…even the separate book pages were sewn together.

MSGM PATTERN BATTLE

I was already taken with MSGM‘s current Spring/ Summer collection in a certain manner, but their upcoming Fall “pattern battle” made my heart jump a bit! I decided to show you only the combinations with the pants, because I usually don’t wear skirts…but these skirts make me think it over! So, you should take a look at the whole collection here! Oh, by the way, have you noticed the girls are standing on patterned floors? What a nice detail for the presentation!

ARTIST STATEMENT
‘SURROCODELIA’ is an amalgamation of the art and aesthetic movements – Surrealism, Rococo and Psychedelia. I am deeply inspired by the idea of the ‘Wunderkammer’ also known as ‘Cabinets of Curiosity’, a concept which emerged in seventeenth century Europe, as people began to collect and display objects they considered to be special, unique or exotic. Sometimes referred to as the precursors of Natural History Museums, these rooms were fully immersive environments composed of objects that aimed to reflect and record the endless wonder of the world. A time before modern science had emerged, these objects were seemingly arranged in the room more for aesthetic effect rather than taxonomic reason.
I am fascinated by this period in time where society seemed briefly suspended between the romanticism of the Wunderkammer and the dawn of modern science. I feel the word ‘SURROCODELIA’ embodies my personal Wunderkammer – the world I try to bring to life through drawing, and all the things I love and collect – natural history, art history, the Australian bushland where I grew up, pattern and drawing.”
