Lawlor, Suzy

Suzy Lawlor’s work explores the mergence of contemporary artistic methods with traditional arts and crafts technique. Her practice investigates the conflicting relationship between the perceived old and new ways of creating physical art. Combining modern and classic to create unique and original artworks. The artistic process of creating natural and spacial metamorphoses is a common theme in Suzy’s work. The examination of when nature is represented through art and the degree of transformation that takes place each time it is processed and produced through the artist’s mind and body.Intricate patterns inspired by organic elements are a recurring prominent presence in her pieces. Considering the findings of nature being a powerful communicative force and investigating how and what it  communicates when manufactured. Suzy studied Fine Art in Central Saint Martins, University of Art and Design, London, graduating July 2015. Suzy is a resident of Acme Studio’s Central Saint Martins Associate Studio Programme 2015. Suzy was shortlisted for the Clyde & Co Blank Canvas Prize 2015 and has been shortlisted for the Clyde & Co. Art Prize 2015 (winner to be announced March 2016).
