Erin Lawlor is a painter living and working in London, England. When she first began painting, she worked primarily in the mode of portraiture; painting her friends and family. After about ten years of figurative work she decided to shift to abstract painting. Her later works serve to dismantle form, composition, and color, and are often characterized by large, visible brushstrokes. Her gestural works are done in thinned oil paint, and the medium appears chalky and muted, contrasted with the free-flowing shapes of her brush.
Lawlor has had solo exhibitions internationally, at galleries including the Rothko Center in Daugavpils, Latvia; French Institute Mayence in Mainz, Germany; FIFI Projects in Mexico; Rod Barton in Miami, FL; La Brea Studio Residency in Los Angeles, CA; Rod Barton in Brussels; Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark; Galerie Klaus Braun in Stuttgart, Germany; George Lawson Gallery, San Francisco, CA; Gray Contemporary in Houston, Texas; Espace Mezcla in Rouen, France; and Galerie Pascaline Mulliez in Paris, France. She has also shown in group exhibitions at art fairs, museums, and galleries including COFA Contemporary in Cologne; Galleri Jacob Bjørn in Aahus, Denmark; Sideshow Nation in Williamsburg, NY; Cornillon-Confoux in France; Kelvin College in Glasgow, UK; Turps Gallery in London, England; Peter Blake Gallery, CA; Parallel Art Space in New York; and more.
