Portrait of an Artist
New Work by Lauren Siry
Lauren Siry will present a collection of watercolor, gouache, and ink works on paper from her Icarus series on Saturday, February 27, 2016 from 6PM-9PM. A cocktail reception will be held on the rooftop of the Porto Vista Hotel until 10:00PM.
Portrait of an Artist is a series of figurative works that investigates the constant mingling of contraries within oneself and encourages a moment of introspective thought. Lauren examines the struggle of internal balance between passion and intellect, the feminine and masculine, and control and chaos. Alluding to the myth of Icarus, she illuminates the consequences of imbalance and the necessity of self-reflection.
