Lawrence Power

Birth placeNew Zealand Birth date1982

Power is understood to be a painter, since mostly all of his work is strictly two-dimensional. But the truth is that he is a painter as much as a sculptor, since he is engaged in breaking down the boundaries of dichotomies such as painting and sculpture, the singular and the serial, static and moving etc.

We could say that he works with architecture on a flat surface, exploring the boundaries set by classical paintings. With this, it is easy to distinguish the influence that some post WWI artists such as Alberto Burri, Antoni Tàpies or Lucio Fontana have in Lawrence’s work, who had blurred the line between painting and sculpture.

Power himself defines his creative process as a “process of painting, over-painting and collaging”.

His work has been shown in both solo and group shows all over Europe and the United States.
