Simeoni’s work is a homage to the senses - a wearable passport to a whimsical ‘other’ reality, finding the beautiful and seductive in what is otherwise thought of as mundane. The rich colours and textures of found objects are important triggers of inspiration, and a limited pallet provides more possibilities. Her work toys with mass-production processes and she frequently reconfigures mass produced objects to create interactive conceptual jewellery and 2d works.

 Lauren Simeoni is an Adelaide based artist working from Gate 8 Workshop collective.

Simeoni has a BA in Gold and Silversmithing from Canberra School of Art, ANU which she followed by a Design Associateship at the Jam Factory and a mentorship at Gray Street Workshop in Adelaide.
