“The works aren’t of anything. They are awkward and playful and imperfect like real life. These aren’t shiny Hollywood paintings. They are mostly made with things that were going to be thrown away, and given an after-life as something nostalgic, intimate, uncertain and human.”
Lauri’s work crosses disciplines but primarily involves painting, collage and the re-assembling of defunct materials. Inspiration is often drawn from mid-century Architecture and Design, the history of Abstract Art, objects that have fallen out of use and childhood memories.
