Lauren Marx

Lauren Marx is currently exhibiting at Roq la Rue Gallery in Seattle together with Travis Louie. Her delicate, intricate, macabre drawings of animals and nature remind me of Caitlin Hackett’s work. They bring to mind the troubled magnetism that one feels as a child, coming upon a decomposing carcass in the woods, compounded of repulsion at the grotesqueness and of being transfixed in fascination, a whisper of a feeling, “as I am now, so shall you be.”
