A Portfolio: Lauren dela Roche

Must read

As we recently learned of Lauren dela Roche‘s representation with Eric Firestone Gallery, we dedicate today’s A Portfolio to the painter. 

Lauren dela Roche, born in 1993 in Santa Rosa, California, is a self-taught artist living in St Louis, Missouri. Her aesthetic is often rooted in autobiography and grapples with the elusive territories of the imagination and memory. Dela Roche’s drawings and paintings feature female nudes in ritualistic acts, cats and dogs living harmoniously, and exotic horses— all creatures share the same stripes, spots, and gestures. An avid reader, Dela Roche cites the magical realist novels of Murakami and Kathy Acker’s punk poetry as influential to her practice. Dela Roche was awarded the 2012-2013 Jerome Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship as well as 2019 Joan Mitchell Foundation Painters & Sculptors Fellowship.
