Establishing Form exhibition - Lauren Goldie

Lauren Goldie (b.1993) is a British installation artist based in Cambridge. In 2015, she completed her BA in Fine Art with a First Class, specialising in sculpture and printmaking at Winchester School of Art.

Selected as a FloatArt finalist, rated within the Top 50 Art Graduates by People of Print, her work was also featured at the opening event of the new Tate Modern. She participated in a six-month artistic/curatorial project at the CASS Faculty of Art in association with Whitechapel gallery and was recently elected a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. Work is currently on display at Broomhill Sculpture Park as a finalist in the National Sculpture Award. Establishing Form developed from a series of light projections testing levels of plasticity within material, predominantly wax, exploring its paradoxes and unpredictable metamorphosis. These projected environments permanently evolved as the object gradually assumed its own consistancy. Drawing was one of the methods used to document and isolate shape. In this collection, shapes were enlarged using pencil and graphite. Fine line work was introduced to demonstrate the movement, life and pliability of the properties within the space. Wax is referenced throughout history and literature as a material of resemblance. It has been referred to by Plato, Freud, Aristotle; Pliny the Elder wrote of ‘the innumerable’ uses of wax. However, its contradictory properties mean it is in a constant state of evolution. An audience is never seeing a waxwork as the Artist intended, unconsciously we make it vulnerable to touch, the impression of fingers or textures and to the interchangeable temperature of its surroundings. The intention of these drawings was to capture moments of the wax between form and matter This collection is available to view at Broomhill Sculpture Park from September 15 to October 1. The work features alongside Light Obscurity, an outdoor sculpture displayed as a finalist of the National Sculpture Prize. Establishing Form runs in conjunction with Art Trek Open Studios, a project established to encourage audiences to travel to remote, beautiful locations of Devon and connect with rural Artists.
