Lawrence Mesich's media work explores moments when bodies and buildings intersect, and their
political and social effects. He uses corporate aesthetics and dry wit to frame these subjects as
both singular entities and complex systems.
My paintings are explorations of imagery and emotion, I attempt to make something recognizable
or quotidian become radiant. Figures in the work might be abstracted, I don't distort images.
Rather, I depict them as life itself distorted
My artistic research is best described as a social inquiry into class-consciousness. My work links two
disparate worlds; the mining industries of Wyoming and the sophistication of the 19th century
Surreal Manipulation Photography was a series created in 2008 juxtaposing normal images against
the sharp contrast of one's imagination. The result was a group of surreal images, that bring dreams
and nightmares to reality.
My work is a mixture of elements. On the one hand it is a conversation with others working now and getting influences to respond to and on the other it is the traditional practice of just working with the materials.
