'Their narrative thread welds the sensual to the frivolous as they interrogate and confront the world around us and the systematic chaos of life.'

INFORMATION

Artist Statement

Artists, Lorraine Waugh and Steve Starr embark on an abstract exploration of the natural and urban landscape. During the 2020 lockdown, in the absence of human presence, the natural world moved to fill the void created in our landscape. Waugh and Starr seek to understand and twist out of shape the connection and often lack of connection, between the human and the natural world.

Waugh and Starr interrogate, deconstruct, dissect and then connect emotionally resonate truths, both personal and collective that are often hidden by our consciousness but are in plain sight in the natural world around us.

Their narrative thread welds the sensual to the frivolous as they interrogate and confront the world around us and the systematic chaos of life.
