Created in 2023. This is one of a (currently) small collection of works that may have also launched a new brand. Lawrence was working on “just another landscape” with colorful hills and trees casting shadows, and it seemed unremarkable. He’s not known for unremarkable paintings! In a flash of insight, he decided to replace the blue sky with black, and consequently created a cognitive dissonance of remarkable power. The clouds are still white and side-lit by an afternoon sun that is still casting long shadows across the rolling hills. An afternoon sun and starry, black sky simply cannot exist--in this universe, at least. This work includes an abstract comet in the sky. Comets are known as harbingers of either good or evil events, and his use of them has grown out of a 2016 collaboration with the professional ballet company Ballet Tucson in which the traditions of Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) celebrations are explored through the spectacular choreography of Chieko Imada. There is a scene by an ofrenda (alter) in a typical Mexican graveyard, and Lawrence chose to enhance the scene by taking it further into the spirit world through this quasi-stellar harbinger. Such comets soon began to appear in his studio paintings, too, and with growing importance.
