Art on Main Window-Front Gallery
Now through 6/24/2018
The City of Auburn and the Auburn Arts Commission are pleased to present The Rundown, an installation of innovative site-specific painting and sculpture by Lauren Boilini at Auburn’s Art on Main window-front gallery, at One Main Street, Auburn. The art is viewable from the street 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Lauren Boilini creates large scale, mural-sized paintings, often working directly on the wall exploring painting as installation. She is interested in how large-scale work relates to the size of the human body and the potential for the paintings to physically overwhelm the viewer. Boilini’s current body of work investigates ideas of excess, when images of excess become meaningless and fall into the realm of pattern. Fascinated with crowds of people converging together, the artist investigates various events and practices that join masses of life forms to discover how they interact when driven together in hordes. Recently she has been drawn to images of battles and duels, where opposing forces fight for the same space. She is interested in what drives us to violence and destruction of life.
