Graphite Drawings by Jeremy Lawson
The drawings explore the premise that memories are little more that an ever-shifting collage of myth and corrupted recollection.
It’s said that who "you" are is simply a collection of memories that have made up your internal story. But memories don’t exist in a concrete way, they're an evolving act of creation, where the farther away from an "event" you are the more that event is subject to imagination. - Jeremy Lawson
Influenced by historical etchings and 19th century newspaper illustrations, the aesthetic of Lawson's work underscores his attempt to grapple with the idea of memory.
His first solo show Pangea Before The Sky Fell is currently on display at 33Bond Gallery
in New York City.
