Lauren Satlowski’s Subversive and Saccharine Figures
For some time now, I’ve pined over the works of Lauren Satlowski. Her technique, the odd subject matter, and the saccharine colors appeal to me in a very visceral way. I hesitate to label her work as a juxtaposition of ugly/beautiful, but that’s the best way I can describe it. Using jewel-toned hues and photo-realistic rendering, her characters sometime remind me of a surreal version of Precious Moments figurines. They definitely aren’t as sweet, and are instead subversive.
for my birthday I wanna get hit by a bus
so for my art project we had to fake a death/murder. for mine I did someone who had jumped off a building. when I was laying down while the picture was being taken, 7 people came running up to me asking if I was okay and if I needed an ambulance etc. I’ve been suicidal for a very long time, and the thoughts of jumping off buildings and ending my life have gone through my mind a thousand times. But the fact that people actually stopped and came running over to see if I was alright made me see that people do care, strangers care. so many people looked and walked past, but these 7 people some how took these suicidal feelings away… weird huh? But the moral of this story is that people do care about you, even people who don’t know who you are.
