Although vastly different in context and style, the similar colour palette between Lauren Pryde’s and Clare Chapman’s work connects through the discussion of life and death. This can be discovered through their joint exhibition at Pie FactoryMargate.

“Floating in a bubble… towards are untimely death”


Lauren Pryde has created paintings, sculptures and social interactive art. Lauren’s main inspiration at the moment is the hit musical Wicked by Stephen Schwartz and the book the musical was based on, Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire.

Each piece is indirectly produced, yet purposefully at the same time. Purposeful by our undeniable humanity that keeps us so wrapped up in our own lives; open to being spoon-fed and denied truth while we all float in our own little bubble.


Clare Chapman’s faceless portraits are created from Clare’s love of paint. Pushing the painting so that one has to question whether it’s even a portrait anymore.

Working with the sublime, Clare started to focus on her perception of Feminism and Gender inequality surrounding herself and her daughter. Starting to perceive the world differently, and by removing my rose tinted view of the world Clare started to see even more pink and this imbalance is shown throughout her artwork from the limited palette.
