Artist Statement:  

Statement by Eleanor Heartney, art critic. Artnews magazine, Art in America.

We are accustomed to reading through a line of type of a mathematical formula as if the black lines on paper were transparent makers pointing to a meaning that resides disembodied in the mind. Ld Lawrence restores a sense of the visual concrete nature of written languages. Her sources include Egyptian hieroglyphs, prehistoric cave paintings, chemical diagrams and children's drawings—in other words, that class of expression in which the physical form of the sign for an object or concept is invested with something of its visual qualities.  Scattered with simple symbols adapted from the worlds of science and nature, her paintings thus offer a portrait of the world as seen through the minds eye.  They offer food for contemplation about the nature of meaning and how we come to reproduce the world in thought…….Lawrence looks at the world from the inside out. She reveals how it shrugs itself into existence; she pauses to notice the way ordinary signs and symbols carry within them pieces of the larger design; and she celebrates the systems that bind thought and world together.
