Ask any local creative whose work they respect most, and they’re likely to name Lauren McAloon. The longtime sculptor – known for her exquisitely balanced compositions using found materials, wood, metal and ceramics – is enjoying a period of explosive creativity. The abstracted shapes of boats are a recurring theme, evoking both the near universality of immigration stories in our backgrounds and a scorching critique of historical and contemporary politics, in which so many have made such dangerous crossings.
