Get to know the artist

We asked Lauren Hubbard some questions to get to know her and her practice better.

What does the theme ‘Emergence’ mean to you/your practice?

The Artwork I have made for the theme of the festival is to portray the suggestion of a new creative thought. Often my work emanates from abstract thought and the need to physically process information in a three-dimensional way.

What do you love most about being a part of our festival?

I love a new challenge and having the opportunity to digitize my work is so exciting. To have worked alongside so many well-chosen artists and art groups and to see their work in the flesh will be such a treat.

What would you like the audience to take away from experiencing your work?

My work elicits totally different responses depending on the viewer: I hope the audience will take away a positive experience.

What message or emotion do you aim to convey through your work?

Curiosity, thought and a good dose of happiness.

Could you describe the feeling you get when you see your art resonating with people?

I’m absolutely stoked when my art resonates with people.
