A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Lauren dela Roche: Day Lily

Sean Horton (Presents) / New York / Art

There is certainly no shortage of female nudes in art, but the self-taught artist Lauren dela Roche depicts female bodies in a new light. Her women are twisted, elongated, sometimes doubled, and always classically inflected. In ink and pigment, she places these bodies in lacelike interiors that float strangely; swans, jungle cats, and butterflies drift through the delicate domestic space. Born in Santa Rosa, California, and now living in Minneapolis, Roche dips into an elusive realm of imagination and memory. —C.M.
