In her new body of work, Lauren studies defense mechanisms and displays of attraction both in nature and within the human experience. Conceptually this series grapples with the tension between strength and vulnerability. Her pieces combine elements of protective behaviors and adaptations, in contrast with visual displays of attraction. This series challenges the viewer to contemplate beauty in the struggle to survive, as well as ugliness in the pursuit of achieving the unattainable status quo of desirability.
