Lauren Semivan – ‘Observatory’

Lauren Semivan’s series ‘Observatory’ – “ghosts of previous drawings create a sense of time suspended, evoking gesture, atmosphere and memory… an access to the extraordinary, to keep a record of dreams, and to employ the unknown.”

“In scientific disciplines, a line is classified as an event. Something as primitive as a scrawl on a surface reveals an aggregate of events, intersecting and changing course.  Drawings made on the seamless backdrop describe an emotional space.

Science is inherently experiential, as is art making. Knowing and feeling are not separate, and the whole of the environment can be used as a pedagogic instrument. My ongoing body of work elegantly draws upon a tension that exists between irrational and physical worlds.”
