Studio Visit with Ocean Loren


 

We visited with very much pleasure Ocean Loren Baulcombe-Toppin (b.1996, London) in her extremely curated and welcoming studio at ACAVA Barham Park.


Ocean Loren is an artist of multiple diaspora who researches what it means to 'be' through a gentle and meditative practice. With an understanding that existence is pure multiplicity, her work focuses upon fluidity, liminality, connection and diversity.
