At first glance Lauren Kerjan’s work appears charmingly simple, even decorative. Landscapes, botanical subject matter and animal portraits proliferate, all rendered with clean line work and soft shading.

Yet, despite their easy appearance Kerjan’s images are strangely captivating, possessing an energy of beautiful intrigue. The scenes she represents are familiar, yet a little strange, slightly off centre. This awkward grace makes Kerjan’s images ever more interesting, drawing the viewer closer as they itch to learn more of the subject’s story.
