Ochre Lawson

An accomplished artist with many exhibitions under her belt, Ochre Lawson holds a deep appreciation of our unique surroundings in Australia; an environment that is a never-ending source of inspiration. Ochre’s translation captures the spirit of wild country, perhaps showing us a time when man was still connected to animals and nature and had not yet intellectualised a way to separation. With a strong observational and spiritual connection to the landscape Ochre translates her works through energetic line, form and colour, abstracting the landscape whilst retaining a sense of place through breaking up space, overlaying line and texture, simplification of form and non-literal colour relationships.

"I draw from nostalgic memories of my own childhood and create vibrantly coloured and robustly textured works. I am informed and ispired by TV documenteries, scenic Playstation 1 games, and early cel animation cartoons, I would say, my paintings and sculptures explore pre-millenia aesthatics."
