Laurén Brady is a visual artist and educator residing in Lansing, Michigan, where she recently completed her MFA in Studio Art from Michigan State University. Though primarily based in painting, Laurén’s work incorporates original poetry, found-object sculpture, and paper-making to investigate themes of place, memory, and transience.
While at Sable, Laurén was captivated by the many textures in her surroundings—the softness of the ferns, the smooth rocks by the river, the stacks of lumber on the property—and the paradoxical feeling of connectedness with the land though she was a visitor to this place. Her installation of oil paintings and tiny assemblages explore intimacy, tendency, tenderness, reverence, and reverie in relationship to the landscape.
While at Sable, Laurén landed two jobs: as a Development Manager for a nonprofit art center in Lansing and an Assistant Professor of Art. Sometimes you have to leave for opportunities to arise.
