Lauren Edmonds is a multi-media artist living and working in Brisbane, previously based on the Sunshine Coast. She completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with Class I Honours at the Queensland College of Art, Griffith University in 2015. Edmonds’ work often deals with socio-political subjects with the intent to incite a critical engagement with viewers or participants. She works in a variety of media including: drawing, animation, installation and object making. In her more recent work Edmonds has become interested in making interactive artworks. Edmonds’ artwork I dun good (2015) was selected to exhibit in Experimenta Make Sense: International Triennial of New Media Art in 2017. This exhibition is currently touring Australia, from 2018-2020.
In 2015 she was awarded two awards in the Sunshine Coast Art Prize New Media category for 2014 and again a finalist for the 2015 prize, opened to artists nationally. In 2014 she was a finalist in the Marie Ellis Prize for Drawing. Edmonds has held two solo exhibitions, one in 2009-10 and one in 2012.
