Lauren Portada

BIO
Lauren Portada currently lives and works in NY and NJ. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in New York, Chicago, L.A., India and Norway. She was one of ten founding members of the artist-run collective Regina Rex located in Brooklyn and Manhattan from 2010-2018. She held residencies in India (Fulbright), Svalbard, Norway, and Vidgelmir Cave, Iceland. Recent shows include Transmitter Gallery, BK (solo; 2019) The Pit, LA (2018) Kristen Lorello, NY (2018) and Trestle, BK (2020).
Pushing aside painting norms, Portada works on both sides of the canvas to slowly conceal and reveal the organic forms of the painting—a meticulous process of building layer upon layer of paint, while simultaneously wiping away the surface, unearthing earlier manifestations of the image. Likewise, canvas and linen are dyed and painted, stained and tarnished and collaged atop the surface to contest with the image below.
