Bockley Gallery is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition, Lauren Roche: Collected Vessels. This is the Minneapolis artist’s second one-person exhibition with Bockley Gallery.
Roche’s latest collection consists of five dynamic mixed-media works on paper where female nudes, animals and surfaces pose, float, touch and bleed into and onto one another. In these dramatic new compositions her dark-haired figures bend and reach in gestures of care, connection and empathy, suggesting solidarity and harmony between impassive but vulnerable female forms. Her figures are posed against rough fields of color, abstracted furniture, and interior spaces populated by a menagerie of creatures and ceramic/textile forms. Smudges of red and black become masks, veils and wounds as the women seem to seek succor, repose and comfort from the animals and one another.
