Introduction

This website showcases Laurence's art work throughout his career. His creative works often contain co-existing opposites, particular approaches to painting that ebb and flow, sometimes fusing, sometimes competing, such as expressionistic gesture and figurative depiction, three dimensional illusion and picture plane flatness.  They are essentially poetic with layers of thought-provoking imagery, shape, colour and gesture. Many find origin within urban or industrial 'edgelands', landscaped gardens, fishing ponds, or inside the home or studio, or they explore themes from which they derive their titles too. However, whatever initiates the work does not always guide it entirely. Once a work is underway other visual, emotional, intellectual,  physical and psychological elements make a contribution. Some work is spontaneous and rapid whilst others are 'stretched' over time, accumulations of layers of thoughts, observations, reflections and adjustments. The works on the website are grouped according to the key places where Laurence has had a studio or produced work.
