When painting, I am not “Creator”. I am simply the space where creation shows up. I paint under the assumed name Lawson in an attempt to further remove ego from the equation.
To paraphrase Eckhart Tolle – All Creativity comes out of inner spaciousness. Once the Creation has happened and something has come into form, I have to be vigilant so that the notion of me or mine does not arise. If I take credit for what I accomplish, the ego has returned, and the spaciousness has become obscured.
This latest body of work, I call projection Sauvage. It allows me to combine structure with a mixed medium of acrylic, ink, collage, transfers and found objects. My subject is always about the uncovering of one’s enlightenment.
