Erin Lawlor: Hiraeth - Art Collector

Erin Lawlor, Hiraeth, 2017. Oil on canvas, 180 x 130cm. Courtesy of The Artist and Fox Jensen, Sydney.

FOX/JENSEN will present Lawlor’s newest paintings alongside selected works from her solo exhibition Maleri.Nu/Paint.Now, Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum, Copenhagen and onomatopoeia at Daugavpils Mark Rothko Centre for Art in Latvia.

​Lawlor hones her vision on the interior of gesture, placing us inside its anatomy. The looping trajectory of brushstrokes insinuates a shallow depth, but it is the small windows that appear like cavities in the lyric composition that insinuate a deeper space beyond the veils. Such expansive gesture might tempt an autobiographical reading given the apparent tracing of her own movements around the field, and her paintings carry references to the spin and swish of pop culture.
