Robert Lawrence Designs presents Marcy Cook and Claire Chauvin
Since the beginning of this year, Marcy Cook has been working with a technique that is a departure from her well-known painting style, but closer to her roots as a floral designer. Beginning with a blind-contour drawing, Cook has mastered utilizing colorful cut collage elements to create fragmented shape renderings of elegant floral still life’s with an emphasis on color play and negative space.
Cook will present six new large-scale collage works inspired by the Dutch Master’s floral still life paintings for the 17th century, made exclusively for RLD showcasing this elegant and new process.
Claire Chauvin creates colorful enigmatic still life photographs inspired by “Pretty birds, Glowing screens, Post millennial anxiety”. Chauvin’s work is at once subtle and loud, direct yet shy, alive but dying. Her subject matter varies from skulls encased in neon plexiglass, to bright geometric shapes paired with tropical flora. Everyday materials exist alongside the exotic, set in a gentle gradient of an endless monotone landscape.
Chauvin will present 12 new photographic works showing the breadth of her unique visual language.
