Dana Lawrie

The hopeful/hopeless.  

Investigating expanded notions of self-portraiture, using experimental and naïve approaches to materials in order to negotiate a relationship between permanence and impermanence.

Repetitive, transformative and often redundant processes used in the creation of each work function as a way to concentrate on, or examine how one might hold the unremarkable, or insignificant, as meaningful.

– a quiet engagement with mortality –
