Exploration of mood and atmosphere through texture and color are synonymous with Lorraine’s signature style of Abstract Expressionism.
Fine Artist, Lorraine Lawson, is either found in her quaint little studio/gallery in Downtown Campbell, California or enjoying time with “the other man in her life”, her grandson, Aaron.
Born in Liege Belgium and inspired by my great-grandfather’s work, I knew from a young age that becoming a fine artist was my destiny. Although my style is clearly my own, Gustave Flasschoen has been the motivator in pursuing the life of an artist and finding my own voice.
“Art has the power to make us see things from a different perspective”
Because my work is so personal, the creative process invites scrutiny of the highest level. The pressure to create to a standard that meets the approval of my peers is a challenge. To create works of substance and quality that rivals the masters before me requires endless self-examination.
“I search for meaning beyond what I see”. My abstract works are studies of seasonal, emotional, and atmospheric change. Texture, color, energy, pure emotion are the inspiration for defining the style in my work.
Exotic papers, sheet music, newspaper, texture mediums, sand, stones, and shells are just a few discoveries in the multiple layers of my abstract work. Culture and lifestyle are themes that invite the viewer to develop a connection to my work, as well.
Because of my love of nature’s beauty and magnificence, I also explore the comfort found in more traditional landscape paintings.
