Shoebox Orchestra Review: Two Galleries with New Tomorrows, Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle, October 3, 2014:

Lauren Davies' small sculptures made of plaster, paint, pulverized glass and flocking masquerade as mineral specimens, igniting the desire to heft them.

Davies' idea of faking bits of the earth smilingly satirizes the traditional notion of "nature" - that is, the visible world - as art's proper subject, linking it with current anxieties about human artifice as a menace to life on its home planet.
