River Rainforest is Lauren Guymer's new collection of landscape paintings on paper and clay inspired by her 2022 NSW road trip and residency at the Nancy Fairfax studio, Tweed Regional Galley.
During her trip, Lauren immersed herself in the landscape, swimming in turquoise creeks and creating beneath the rainforest. Far from the crowds and surrounded by trees, these places are where she would rather be. Featuring tranquil rivers and meandering rainforest tracks, Lauren explores her connection to the natural world through layers of painted memories and reflections.
Also on exhibition for the first time are ceramic works that correlate and connect to her works on paper, and a collaboration with her sister and Northern Rivers artist, Suzanne Guymer. With Wollumbin as a central point, this collaboration celebrates their unique styles and shared experiences.
