Lauren's large and small oil paintings respond to ever changing mysteries experienced in nature on Manitoulin Island. This new body of work expresses the wide-open blueness of Lake Huron’s bays then follows a dance of luminous deep coloured night skies. Smaller works are forays into winter, snowshoe trails, the maple bush during collection time, the artist’s expansive garden and first snows on abandoned farms. Her partial abstractions respond to what is wild at source.
Born and raised in Toronto, Lauren studied environmental biology at the University of Guelph then at the University of Toronto in 2000 to finish an arts degree. She completed courses in fine art at U of T, the Toronto School of Art and OCAD. Her work has been shown in several international art fairs, is in three corporate collections and in private collections across Canada. Since 2006, Ms. Satok completed 10 solo exhibitions and numerous groups shows in Toronto, Montreal, Sault Ste. Marie and Manitoulin Island, also including her other practice of drawing.
Ms. Satok’s work is included in catalogues at Canadian Fine Arts Gallery Toronto and Beaux Arts des Ameriques in Montreal. Her painting received second place at the 2018 La Cloche Art Show and for her large format piece ‘Under and Over’ in Vaughan’s Urban Jungle in 2017. In 2021, two of Ms. Satok’s drawings ‘Astrolabe’ and ‘Raising Consciousness and Terra Nullius’ were chosen to be included in a time capsule of international artists’ work to be sent and remain on the moon on the next lunar launch.
Lauren lives and paints on Manitoulin Island.
Lauren Satok’s painting practice reflects change, stillness and spirit. Her work acts as a conduit from the land to the canvas. Her landscapes reflect all seasons, its shifts and records a changing climate of our time. Lauren walks, swims and paddles Manitoulin Island with hope for reconciliation, decolonization practices and the deep desire for all people to see ourselves as part of nature rather than separate. Lauren’s styles often shift like the wind, but she surrenders to the spirit with which it takes her. Both abstract and recognizable forms in her work create mystery and chaotic beauty.
