If you are interested in an artist that will impact Australia's modern art scene; Dana Lawson is someone to familiarise yourself with. (Eryngium Miasma; the Art of Dana Lawson).
I have had the pleasure of reviewing the work of this young artist and highly recommend perusing her opus. (links listed below).
As a published cartoonist her rendering of fantasy characters surpasses the wildest imagination.
Her cast of captivating dramatis personae burst to life with articulation and physiognomy.
Dana's use of colour is vibrant while creating atmosphere. Her pieces are visually stimulating and exciting. She has a rare talent of awaking her troupe, giving the viewer insight into their individual personalities.
This, 'up and coming', artist and cartoonist, is preceded by progenitors with their own expertise and flair.
Jenny Augenia Lawson is a prolific and experienced artisan. Working in many different media, wire, beading and an authority on fiber craft, Jenny is a known mastercraftsman, (Craft Cove).
Dana's father, Peter. J. Lawson, is also a published cartoonist. His skill and talent has been pursued resulting in his own comic, 'Torn', (Pestiferous Picturing: The Art of Peter J. Lawson).
The collective mastery of the Lawson clan, and their dedication to the visual arts and artistry, has produced a rising talent in Dana Lawson.
It has been an ocular indulgence to explore the oeuvre of this competent young creator.
Published in 2018 through Reverie Publications, privileged comic fans were thrilled with Dana's vibrant production and flamboyant personages.
To verbally convey the simplicity, yet complexity, of her musing band of fantasia ménage, is a task in futility.
To truly comprehend and relish this escapade into a cosmos of alien individuals only a first hand encounter will suffice.
I urge a visit to one of her links for those with a contemporary and discerning artistic eye . The visit will reward you with vibrant vertuosity, teeming with unique species and reverie beyond your uninhibited ideas of creation, originality and invention.
I cordially invite you to meet Dana's motley crew.
Delight your senses and step into this exhilarating world that is Eryngium Miasma by Dana Lawson.
