Lauren DiCioccio's intricately embroidered work investigates print media and mass-produced objects facing obsolescence: newspaper, magazines, and plastic bags. Her work has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, The Bellevue Arts Museum, and San Jose Institute of Contemporary Art. She is represented by Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco and Tomlinson Kong Contemporary in New York. Lauren has been a resident artist at Recology in South San Francisco and Palo Alto Art Center, and she is a current affiliate at Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito. For Workshop Residence, she pushed her embroidery work into the functional realm, creating a line of tote bags which recall the now ubiquitous plastic variety.
