Lauren Guymer is an emerging visual artist based in Melbourne, Australia. Lauren creates highly detailed black and white artworks 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 technique, she used tiny dots, lines, and marks, to construct dream-like worlds of her own. Her work acts as a window looking into her vivid imagination and the places she has visited, filled with otherworldly places and nostalgic memories. She is also interested in exploring ideas and themes relating to surrealism, symbolism, homes, dreams, and outer space.
Lauren currently works from her home studio which is situated on a small farm on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Here she takes inspiration from the surrounding natural environment and local fauna & flora.
