PRESS EXCERPTS
"...New York based artist Lauren Matsumoto uses unexpected elements to focus on nature and how we relate to it."
-Leslie Frenz, Artsy Forager

"...an eclectic mixture of works that evinced a mixture of high technical chops, alluring concept and great composition."
-Binnorie, Brooklyn Art Project Quarterly

"While her work uses many organic themes, it often examines the relationship between nature and civilization. Elements of technology creep into each piece."
- Jing Qu, 292 Magazine

"Brooklyn-based artist Lauren Matsumoto explores how humans relate to nature in her Fauna and Flora series, which combines painting, drawing, and collage to symbolize the natural world's perpetual cycles of growth and decay."
-Leah Pellegrini, My Modern Met
