Lauren Satlowski’s Subversive and Saccharine Figures


For some time now, I’ve pined over the works of Lau­ren Sat­lowski. Her tech­nique, the odd sub­ject mat­ter, and the sac­cha­rine col­ors appeal to me in a very vis­ceral way. I hes­i­tate to label her work as a jux­ta­po­si­tion of ugly/beautiful, but that’s the best way I can describe it. Using jewel-toned hues and photo-realistic ren­der­ing, her char­ac­ters some­time remind me of a sur­real ver­sion of Pre­cious Moments fig­urines. They def­i­nitely aren’t as sweet, and are instead subversive.
