Natan Lawson


Natan Lawson is a painter who produces hybrid artwork that intersects hand-made and computer-processed media. He collages imagery from an archive of collected printed materials that are simultaneously autobiographical and universal. He revisits bygone aesthetics as a meditation on collective and personal memory, producing paintings that echo traditional methods of creating images on a grid, especially textile production techniques like cross-stitch and weaving. This mechanical approach to painting involves misregistration, error, and imperfection, which impart the hand of the machine to the final work.
