“Marks & Gestures” by Skip Lawrence 30″x22″ mixed media on paper


price  $1923 each

The longer I think about making art the more I understand that there should be no rules about making art. For my entire life, I have searched for the secrets of making art only to come to the realization that formal answers are never going to get me where I want to go.  Linear and aerial perspective, principals of design, elements of art, color theories, what media to use, and how to use them are all the things that keep an artist from FREEDOM.  If art is not about being free then it is not art but science.

The images presented here are the latest paintings I have made.  These images mean nothing.

Even the titles where created after the paintings were completed

    These paintings are interesting. The marks the palette have engaged me in a place where I am drawn to. I attended a residence last year in Corciano, Italy organized by Don Kimes. I that residency there seemed to be an opening for growth that I would like to pursue. I just needed to find a person that seemed to be a person who I might want to work with. I live in Brookeville, MD. Would it be possible to communicate by computer or by phone?

    Basically, I am stuck and want to have a mentor.

    Hello Skip, You conducted a workshop in Southport, NC several years ago and I sat right in front of you (close enough that you constantly borrowed my art crayons by Caran d’Ache!) Perfectly okay with me! I have hoped that you would return. You’ll have to hurry–I will be 82 years old in January!

    Hope you are doing well. Your latest art is raw and honest and wonderful. Keep it up.

    Continued best wishes, Eloise

      Long time between drink. Sorry, the Southport group never invited me back. Keep an eye on my website for new workshops that will work for you.
