Michael Lawton. Sheffield, 1980

Michael Lawton is an artist working with painting and writing. He uses abstraction to narrate verbal, lived or speculative moments; the instant the phosphorescent ash cloud solidified around the town of Pompeii for instance, or the moment our distant ancestors crawled from the primordial swamp 3.8 billion years ago. He writes about the very same moments; when the sensorial overtakes the cerebral, sometimes inventing or swapping languages to do so, setting these texts in alternative presents or counterfactual futures.

He has shown his paintings recently in 38b Projects (London), SWAB Art Fair (Barcelona), Window Space Gallery (London) Yellow (Varese), Five Years Gallery (London), Addaya Centre d’Art Contemporani (Mallorca), Sobering Gallery (Paris), Le Cabinete Dentaire (Paris) and Passatge Studio (Barcelona). And had texts published in The Happy Hypocrite, Antennae: The Journal of Nature in Visual Culture, The International Journal for the Practice and Theory of Creative Writing, and The Burning Sand.
