AboutUsing literature, the built-environment and typography as a starting point, the practice of Paul Lawrence encompasses many different mediums and influences. Working within a tightly defined framework, Paul's practice explores stories, places, rhythms and psychoanalysis within today's social context. For the first residency at Daniel Shand, Paul has chosen to create a new project, loosely based on visual storytelling through pre-defined though randomly generated narratives. Using one time cryptography and technical drawing as a starting point, Paul will work with screen printing, collage and painting to create a series of images defining the imaginary landscapes of our internalised worlds. Paul's background is in design and architecture, which is often evident in the highly technical and analytical nature of his work, where process and material play as important part in practice as concept. Also greatly influenced by new wave literature, he has, often used literary techniques common to writers such as Perec, Duras, Robbe-Grillet and OuLiPo in his visual practice, with the purpose of creating work that has a studied and elegant simplicity.
