Oakland, California based artist and educator, Lauren Hartman's artwork responds to current topics, which serves as a record in our cultural conscience. The sea has become a platform to discus global issues connected by international waters. It is a passageway for commerce, culture, and corruption. Hartman works primarily in embroidery and sculptural installations. Using traditional craft and culturally-charged photo documentation of our encounters with the natural world, she improvises new terminology, addressing socio-political issues of today. Revealing grandiose oil-rig explosions at sea or a man tossing cans of condensed milk from a Soviet tank to a polar bear through detailed hand-stitching and re-examining our humble relationship to nature.
