LA artist Lauren Mendolsohn-Bass’ paintings reflect current socio-political tensions with renewed awakening. Through her large oil paintings, the artist’s investigation of socially constructed norms via mass culture reveal fissures between representation and reality.

 

Mendelsohn-Bass’ depictions of archetypal women serenaded with desserts, sweets and candy culled from vintage advertisements delve into complex relationships between desire, and desirability as a mass-produced construct. The works in Sugar Coated reconcile such questions while engaging aesthetics of excess both visually and conceptually.      

Lauren Mendelsohn-Bass is a Los Angeles born painter who received her Bachelor of Arts at the University of California, Los Angeles. Her work depicts the psychology of the mind’s inner conflicts and struggles, portrayed through her figures’ outward appearance and gestures. She often emphasizes the psychological drama with a monochromatic, Film Noir feel in order to examine what makes us tick. Her large, figurative paintings have a climactic, narrative quality with a focus upon emotional suspense, with each glance suggesting a passion or crime.
