Lauren Ohlgren describing her thoughts on Window On Art.
How does an artist work or paint in a non-representational, or non-objective abstract art style? How does one know when it’s done? The idea is for the public to observe that process as I work on a series of paintings/drawings on paper that reflect the experimental -and somewhat risky- nature of how I work. I often describe it as ‘create chaos then calm it all down’ as I resolve the design issues that arise while bringing a piece to completion. The paintings will move through transformative stages of process as I create and alter layers with graphite, charcoal, acrylic paints, oil and other supplies from the studio.
