Creating pseudo realistic, figurative paintings with a Rorschach inkblot test underbelly.
Lauren Haggis is a fine artist with a strong background in painting and drawing. Her paintings, usually with a nude solitary female figure, are rich with understated depth, carrying an engaging soft sense of the personal mixed with an underlying almost cinematic narrative that keeps the viewer occupied in guessing what is truly
occurring within the mind and surroundings of the artwork’s subject. Often Haggis’ paintings explore the boundaries and relationships of chaos and silence. Without giving her viewers a distinct and apparent answer for each painting, she asks questions, inviting the viewer to converse with the painting and find their own answers and meaning within it.
Her works have varied from private commissions by the global firm, Morgan Stanley, to appearances in Academy Award winning movies, along with group and solo exhibitions.
Her North Los Angeles studio is open to collectors and curators, as well as client requests for commissions & portraiture.
Haggis has been featured in various publications, such as LA2DAY. She has exhibited in Los Angeles, New York, and Canada.
