Lauren Guymer is an emerging visual artist from Melbourne, Australia. Lauren creates highly detailed black and white drawings and paintings inspired by the natural world.
From the Australian wilderness to faraway places, Lauren is constantly observing, exploring, and sourcing new inspiration. She is fascinated by nature and landforms, from mountains and rivers to plants and animals. With a strong focus on drawing and mark making, she meticulously constructs dream-like worlds of her own. Her artwork acts as a window looking into her vivid imagination and the places she has visited, filled with otherworldly places, nostalgic memories, and uninhabited sanctuaries. She also explores ideas relating to surrealism, symbolism, memories, and dreams, resulting in works that meet somewhere between fantasy and reality.
Currently, Lauren works from her home studio situated on a small farm on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. Here she takes inspiration from the local fauna & flora and surrounding scenery.
