Stacey Lawrence

Avondale , GA
Stacey Lawrence is an artist concentrating in painting. Driven by the desire to visually express the intangible, Stacey’s work is about spaces, intimacy and vulnerability. Her art reflects her personal journey using artistic exploration. Her references to water, land and sky, are combined with abstraction, blurring familiarity with imagination. She creates imagery that embraces singularity and compositions that are bold and minimal, pronounced yet contemplative. Randomly, subjectively, emotionally - she expresses herself with artistic freedom. There are no expectations, only the desire to create soulful work. Using a variety of mediums, including oil and acrylic paints, cold wax, graphite, markers, pencils, plastics, chalks and random papers she creates what she refers to as ‘oddly comfortable’ compositions. Here, she contrasts the familiar with the unknown, offering a sense of security where feelings of vulnerability exist. She says, ‘I find it fascinating to explore where intentional and experimental efforts merge. I have found that by relinquishing control and momentarily detaching, my creative process is heightened and my artistic expression is honest. It is this combination of certainty and unexpectedness that lures me to create and defines my relationship with my art.’
