Artist Jeremy Lawson creates paintings, sculptures, and text-based artworks that pay homage to art history while challenging conventions and norms in each artform. In his paintings, he uses a brushless approach that points to and expands upon the legacy of Abstract Expressionism. His canvases, densely packed with pigment, are textural landscapes formed by craters, blotches, and clumps of oil paint. Opting to use his hands instead of a paintbrush, Ways and Means 2 is strongly gestural, balancing moments of aggressive action with delicate touch to create a chaotic yet harmonious composition.
