Intro
Lauren Fensterstock creates objects of desire whose beauty draws us in, only to repel with intimations of dark secrets. This tension culminates in an illusion of depth and motion that leaves viewers with the eerie sensation that these shadowy gardens have a sinister life.

Artist list

Lauren Fensterstock
Both tempting and threatening, Fensterstock creates objects of desire whose beauty draws us in, only to repel with intimations of dark secrets. This tension culminates in an illusion of depth and motion that leaves viewers with the eerie sensation that these shadowy gardens have a sinister life—one that will cause them to grow and change long after we have left the room.
