Lauri Smith

“I have always had a passion for art since as early as I can remember, drawing and making puppets as a child. I went on to study a Bachelor of Fine Arts at UNSW College of Fine Arts (2004) and then completed a Diploma of Special Effects Make Up at 3 Arts College (2006) leading to a career in TV, film and fashion. Collectively, all these experiences guided me to my current art practice, delving into surrealist/hyperrealist sculpture.”

“Through my art practice I am drawn to explore my subconscious state and bring it to the physical realm through form. These sculptures are usually inspired by my bizarre and vivid dreams which I bring to life through my art works. My curiosity is about these non-physical entities that come from the subconscious imagination and their connection to reality, as well as the connection between all life forms.”
