Lauren Clay

New York, NY
Lauren Clay, originally from Atlanta, now lives and works in New York. Clay makes sculpture and large wall works. Her site-specific wall installations warp and manipulate space using digitally printed vinyl photos of handmade collages. Her sculptures, painted plaster reliefs, also address metaphysical interactions with architecture. She received her MFA in Painting from Virginia Commonwealth University, and BFA in Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. She has had solo exhibitions at the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, Denver; Larissa Goldston Gallery, New York; Whitespace Gallery, Atlanta, and Savannah College of Art and Design. Her work has been included in recent group exhibitions at Asya Geisberg Gallery, New York; Patrick Parish Gallery, New York; and Sometime Salon, San Francisco. Clay’s work has been written about in the New York Times, Bomb Magazine, Art in America, and Sculpture Magazine. Her artist book, Subtle Body, published by Small Editions, is included in the library collections of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and The Brooklyn Museum of Art.
