Product story

An accomplished printmaker and draughtsman, Lawson’s imagery explores the architecture of man-made interventions such as cranes, pylons or the industrial landscape of the docks in his hometown of Grimsby. His latest series, Obscured Icons, celebrates the architecture of recognisable buildings which now find themselves obscured by contemporary developments such as luxury apartments and office buildings. A tribute to these previously dominant structures, Lawson’s work highlights the transience and fast pace of ever-evolving modern city living.

These etchings are produced using a combination of traditional etching processes and photo etching, a process where a photographic image is transferred onto a pre-sensitised plate using ultraviolet light and then printed in the same way as a traditional etching.

Artist Sales: this work is sold by the artist. The sale is facilitated by RA Enterprises (RAE) for which RAE receives a commission from the artist only.
