The Worlds Between: Anne Lawson
14 July 2021 - 8 December 2021
Artist(s): Anne Lawson
Location: Ascot Vale Library
The Worlds Between is a vibrant exhibition of mixed-media collages exploring the complex environments of wetlands, mangroves and rockpools—worlds which exist between land and water. Lawson employs painting, cutting, and tearing techniques in her works, bringing to mind the scenes, colours, and textures of these habitats through collage. Though we are beginning to see wetlands and mangroves as critical parts of our environment, too often these habitats have been deemed expendable and seen as barriers to human development. Lawson’s exhibition encourages you to enjoy the natural beauty of these environments, while considering the importance of protecting these unique worlds.
Anne Lawson is a self-taught artist and Ascot Vale resident. She creates bold works on paper, which seek to celebrate the intricacies of the natural world. Her practice has shifted from botanical art illustration to abstract mixed-media collages, allowing her to be adventurous with ideas and materials. The Worlds Between is Anne’s third solo exhibition. Her work is held in private collections around the world.
