Using figurative representation and geometric abstraction, Ted Lawson creates a narrative progression of forms that reveals something conceptually greater than the sum of their parts.
Ted’s large scale works combine digital technology with highly crafted traditional sculpting methods to seamlessly produce conceptual objects that express the underlying analog truth within his subject matter.
His sculpture, both dark and provocative, is, in his words “all about darkness, death, and poetry.”
Ted Lawson is a Brooklyn-based artist and sculptor who weaves eroticism and geometric forms into narrative. Lawson’s art deconstructs reality, then assembles it in new, evocative ways—offering viewers the opportunity ride along and form their own interpretations.
Darkness, eroticism, and death are often central themes to my work, but go to heavy in any one direction, and the viewer can write you off. The trick is to find a balance.
His sculpture “Death of Narrative” has over a thousand pieces in it. Bones, mushroom forms, geometric pieces, characters, pipes. There is so much Chaos! But he is transfering chaos of the world into a story.
