"Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" by Lauren Bergman
Artist Lauren Bergman's work can be found in publications ranging from JUXTAPOZ to The New York Times. She has had three solo exhibitions at the O.K. Harris Gallery in New York.
Bergman explains her style: "I create visual stories that reside at the juncture of myth and social realism. Through my personal language of symbols, my paintings explore both female identity and comment on our shifting political and cultural landscape." Her tribute to "Welcome Home (Sanitarium)" mixes nostalgia and irony to poignant effect.
