In Gallery II, Jayne Lawrence exhibits her meticulously crafted drawings and sculptural works in her exhibition, Contact. In these works, Lawrence “conjoins human anatomy with insect and plant life to create forms that pose frozen in suspended animation.” Of the source imagery, Lawrence notes, “Each individual component is selected because it possesses an attribute that the other counterparts lack. The idea is to create a symbiotic system that is not only defined and understood through its diverse membership, but also enriched by it.” In this way, both artists’ works relate to each other in the most complementary of ways—each representing the individual artist’s take on constructed environments that relate to the human figure while signifying an implied order that acts as counterpointed references for each other.

In her exhibition, Contact, San Antonio artist Jayne Lawrence explores the moment of connection between seemingly disparate entities in her meticulously crafted drawings and mixed media sculptural works. Using symbols related to the human form; the insect, representing the alter ego; and architecture, representing structure and environment; Lawrence conjoins human anatomy with insect and plant life to create forms that pose frozen in suspended animation.

Shown: Lawrence, Carousel of the Arcane, 2015, 34 x 25 inches, liquid graphite, graphite pencil, and Indian ink .
