Found Materials by Artist Rosalind Lawless

‘Found Materials’ by Artist, Rosalind Lawless

‘My practice is strongly influenced by my immediate surroundings. I use commonplace imagery to organise the pictorial space, using forms that occupy and give perspective within the substrate,’ says Rosalind. ‘I continue to explore the imagined and observed within architecture through the process of Layering, repetition, cut- outs, washout and transforming. The detail and form within architecture, intricate lines, structures and vast space are continually explored in my work.’

‘Most recently I have been working with Wall rubbings. Focusing on Public and private space, the space of maintenance and workers areas. This may be fire hydrants, Electrical boxes, Post boxes and re-developed sites where you find the workers mark. Whilst on residency at the International Summer Academy Salzburg I was Looking at scale working on a one-one with the everyday workings within the Hohensalzburg Fortress. Developing work in this way, thinking beyond the aesthetic and function of the substrate has allowed me to utilise such conventional materials in an unfamiliar way resisting the subjective rules.’

Rosalind Lawless is an award-winning Artist with work in permanent collections at Stirling University, Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum and Pallant House Gallery and Museum in Chichester. She graduated with a Masters of Art Printmaking from the Royal College of Art, London and a BA Fine Art Printmaking from Grays School of Art, Aberdeen (First class honours).
