Lauren Grossman

Seattle, WA

A graduate of the University of Washington ceramics program, Lauren Grossman works in a variety of media–from porcelain to cast iron to insect-encrusted fiberglass. Her provocative installations and objects wrestle with the ever-shifting meanings of Judeo/Christian imagery in contemporary culture—poking historical themes for signs of life as well as reexamining the roots of images still in common use.

Over the years, she has hung some twenty solos as well as participated in numerous northwest and national group shows. Reviews of her work have appeared in Art In America, Sculpture, American Ceramics, and other periodicals. Her honors include a Flintridge Foundation Award, two Groot Foundation awards, a Seattle Artists Award, and two Kohler Arts/Industry residencies.
