Lauren Fink – ”Safe Inside”


Lena Groth

Lauren Fink’s “Safe Inside” is a drawing in colored pencil of her mother, along with her mother’s cousin and sister, that demonstrates their togetherness as friends. In this drawing and others, Lauren aims to bring a youthful light in a dark, uncertain world. Lauren finds comfort in drawing children and innocent, positive things, for they provide an escape to a simpler, happier place. The techniques Lauren has used in this piece include the use of a grid to get correct proportions and a layered burnishing technique with vibrant colored pencils to lighten up the darker original image.
