> DESCRIPTION

Lauren Gardiner's newest series of mixed-media sculptures, Misfits of the Forest, is an exposé of perverted pixies, fat fairies, inbred elves and naughty gnomes. From among the seemingly innocent mystical creatures of our collective folklore, Lauren reveals the ones THEY don't want US to see: their deformed, their mentally ill, the fringes of their society who are not so magically perfect. These forgotten outcasts are brought to life in Lauren's usual witty style, but this time in three dimensions! Now experience the poop of these irritating imps UP CLOSE with the scientific accuracy of make-believe!

Lauren graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration in 1998. Since then, she has been based in Los Angeles. This is her 9th time exhibiting at La Luz de Jesus Gallery.
