Bob Lawrie’s artistic career has ranged from graphic designer, illustrator and experimental videomaker to painting and printmaking. These disciplines have led quite naturally from one to the other and he has found to be mutually informative.
Having previously worked using silkscreen printing, Bob’s more recent prints use a digital process but in a ‘silkscreen style’ of layering.
Each print is a compilation of images (an easel, deckchair, garlic press, umbrella, a shoe, etc), each image individually prepared and then layered or combined in the giclee printing process.
The result is like a layering of memories, based on ‘found’ items re-investing them with a sense of aesthetic purpose.
