Lauren Ball is a New York-based artist residing in Brooklyn.
Ball’s exhibition history includes shows at Free Range Gallery (Chicago, IL), The Gowanus Ballroom (Brooklyn, NY), SideCar Gallery (Hammond, IN), Tyler School of Art (Rome, Italy), University of New Orleans Gallery (New Orleans, LA), artLedge (Chicago, IL), and The Butcher Shop (Chicago IL), as well as alternative and apartment spaces in New York, Chicago, and New Orleans. American quilts, parades and processions, film and theater set design, pre-1980s family photographs, urban apartment building storage lockers, natural history dioramas, Indian Miniature Painting, and the New York cityscape remain reservoirs of visual inspiration.
The works of Edouard Vuillard, Odilon Redon, Philip Guston, Judith Geichman, and Monika Baer inspire Ball’s ideas about painting and its possibilities. Ball’s work is informed by the aesthetic experience manifesting collective domestic memory and the narrative-potential of the domestic object.
