JCO'S Art Haus is pleased to present our inaugural Third Thursdays evening event.
Join us for an intimate pop-up show and informal meet-and-greet, featuring the work of artist Lorraine Lawson.
Lawson will discuss her unique process--which involves travel, treasure hunting, and experimentation--and her artistic inspiration.

FROM ARTS CRITIC, DEWITT CHANG:
"The Bay Area artist Lorraine Lawson, whose rather more ‘kempt’ studio sits on a leafy street in a semi-industrial part of Campbell, in Silicon Valley, creates abstract paintings that prioritize creative self-expression. Combining the gestural calligraphy of traditional Asian painting, as well as Abstract Expressionism; rich, saturated color palettes that often evoke the California landscape; and collaged elements scavenged from various sources, Lawson’s paintings are indisputably personal—one of her collectors declared, 'I see your hand in every piece you do'—despite the influence of 'the great' e.g., painters like Mark Tobey, Richard Diebenkorn and Robert Rauschenberg.
Combining the spirituality and even the poetic/literary quality of Asian calligraphy with the collage aesthetic of Western modernism, Lawson’s paintings capture the welter and confusion of contemporary life while reaffirming its ambiguous and fugitive beauty—fugitive, that is, except through art."

ARTIST STATEMENT:
"The studio is the magical place where my vision and interpretation of the world take shape. I create abundant, abstract, textural works inspired by the interaction of culture, history, architecture, artifact, travel, and nature.
The wear and tear of the everyday, the breakdown of architecture and place, the evolution of culture, the way water flows through the earth inspire me to capture their essences and create art somewhere between representational and abstract.
With paint and encaustic mediums I explore watering down, thickening up or suspending to ‘disturb’ layers or elements that explore a sense of time, memory, and place. I appropriate and evolve visual symbols, like the African Sankofa to invite lyrical and meaningful ways of expressing life."
