Lawson’s theory of conceptual art differs from the conventional theory of Conceptual art, in that he believes that the finished piece of art is not just a “perfunctory affair”. Lawson believes that the concept and the creation of the aesthetic object should be executed with as equal care as the concept.
As a conceptual artist my interests were to push the boundaries of photography into the realm of the short story. They are cinematic representations of an atmosphere, a place or a subject. These series of photos are designed to represent the subject in cells as in a film or in paragraphs as in a short story. They represent the many layers of understanding, dimensions of time and space that makes up the world, as we perceive it.
