Lauren Cassar is an art therapist and textile designer, known for her much-loved label Mirador.

'After The Storm, When The Flowers Bloom' is Lauren’s first solo exhibition, a collection of original works on paper, inspired by the artist’s frequent travels, from the red centre to Tasmania’s Tarkine.

The works attempt to capture a feeling of presence, of sitting and simply being in the landscape. The artist’s delicate use of watercolour on velvety paper speaks to the unique feeling of the land after a storm, conveying lush gullies, wet dirt, and the softness of the landscape.

The limitlessness of this country is a primary influence. The works help me explore preservation by way of slow observation and listening, rather than taking.
