'Salty. Sailor. Lover.' by Lauren Webster

In November, Courtesy of the Artist resident and Sydney based artist Lauren Webster transformed our space with her quirky hand drawn illustrations and wire artworks for her solo exhibition 'Salty. Sailor. Lover.'

Lauren's work was a vibrant cocktail of pastel and neon colours, and for this exhibition she continued her exploration into skulls, pin-up girls and nautical themes. Her love for fashion shone throughout her painstakingly detailed pen illustrations, which brought to life sailor characters, their skulls, lovers and clothes. 

To compliment Lauren’s art, the Courtesy of the Artist team developed an exclusive collection of jewellery designed especially for the event. The fruits of this shared dialogue were revealed on opening night and are now available at Courtesy of the Artist.

To conclude 'Salty. Sailor. Lover'Lauren created one final piece on the main wall of the gallery. The process was documented in a series of still images and transformed into a stop motion film which can be viewed here.
