Lauren Napolitano | Red Truck Gallery New Orleans

My work is about celebrating the handmade and the imperfections that come along with it. I am incredibly influenced by my mother’s Mexican heritage and I lean heavily on these ancestors as I create and gather inspiration. I find it important to achieve depth with simple lines and dots, taking something so simple and creating a complex world within. Much of what I create falls between the themes of being surrounded or the movement of energy among every living organism.  As a woman I love to explore bold lines and shapes, creating a symbolic language all my own, while adding a clearly feminine mark. I often find myself inventing delicate pattern work to incorporate a sense of balance and motion…growth…or healing through it all.
