Lauren YS recently returned to her comic roots with her use of black inks in the recent show “CORPUS FLUX.” The show at Juddy Roller in Melbourne featured several new drawings, exploring social and technological themes, along with a new mural adorning the building. YS was last featured on our site in this studio visit.
On her latest body of work: “Addresses the idea of bodies in flux, both in states of identity and physicality,” a statement says. “Large churning masses of characters flow and twist around central hubs anchored by areas of dark ink—animal overlords that act like planets around which her characters revolve. At first glance, the viewer is confronted by a complex, intricate fluctuating mass that reveals itself piece by piece at closer inspection. These drawings act almost as visual puzzle chains in which each link in the chain is forged by human connection. The over-arching element is playful, strange and sensuous sex, a theme which plays out almost with a mind of its own over the course of this body of work.”
