Profile Information

About Lorraine Lawson
Lorraine Lawson is an abstract expressionist painter. A soulful appreciation for the past resonates in her studio practice. She creates abundant abstract textural works inspired by the interaction of culture, history, and architecture artifact, and nature. Transformation is an inherently inspiring source for storytelling. The breakdown of architecture, the evolution of culture, the way water flows through the earth inspire her to capture their essences and create art somewhere between representational and abstract. With paint and encaustic mediums, Lorraine explores watering down, thickening up or suspending to disturb layers or elements that explore a sense of time, memory, and place. She appropriates visual symbols to invite lyrical and meaningful ways of expressing life. The Japanese notion of Wabi Sabi embodies the appreciation of honoring that which is broken and acknowledging timeworn surfaces and beauty in imperfection. This concept is key to her practice. Her art is the product conveyed by years of observing. Request and dedication to the expiration of techniques that express her view is tireless.
