360 Speaker Series: Annette Lawrence
July 23, 2011
The work of Texas-based visual artist Annette Lawrence is generally related to text and information, often in response to physical space and time. The work is grounded in autobiography, counting and the measurement of everyday life.
Her subjects of inquiry range from body cycles to ancestor portraits, music lessons and unsolicited mail. Lawrence’s string installations are a response to architecture as monumental text. The string presents a visual lightness, balanced by the substantial physicality and scale of the work. References to lattice, woven vessels, suspension bridges and musical instruments often emerge.
