Lauren Acton

Harvest | Abstraction | Amazon | Bistro | Torso | Reflection




The works of Lauren Acton are about the figure and how it relates to its environment. Her quasi-abstract figurative paintings do not attempt to tell the viewer exactly what her subject’s face looks like. Instead, she communicates the intangible; she has other things to say, going beyond mere visual description. She describes what may not otherwise be readily perceived by the viewer, and she does so through brightly colored works that create sensuous lyrical movement with aggressive lines shifting across her surfaces in rhythmic patterns, coalescing with vibrant harmony.

Acton earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Art Institute of Boston/Lesley University, after graduating from Ithaca College and then attending Studio Bercot, Fashion Institute, Paris, France; the Fashion Institute of Design, New York City; and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Studio for Advanced Studies, Philadelphia. National juried exhibitions are many and include, among others, the State Museum of Pennsylvania, 2005; the Laredo Arts Center 11th Annual International Juried Exhibition, TX, 2003, winner, 2nd place; and the National Juried Show at the Reading Public Museum, Pennsylvania, 2002.
