Ian Laws, U.S.A Member Since August 2006 Artist Statement Australian National University School of Visual Arts-Textiles&Painting Workshops.
Online at www.artrom.com,finished a year of being online at www.artmine.com through Agora Gallery in New York.
Asked to compete at The Biennale in Italy last 2 years,Lessedra Fine Print,Caraguatatuba 3rd Arts Expo in Brazil,Work with Omma Gallery in San Diego and Greece.
Asked by quite a few Galleries to take on representation,money is always a problem however(haven't got any haha).
My work is an exploration of my own Obssessive Compulsive Disorder,Panic,Anxiety,Pain,medication and my thoughts in through the medium of Art.
I am interested in bringing thoughts,feelings,emotions and more from the fringes of society.
Helping myself and others to understand that all things should be Inclusive rather than Exclusive based on society's narrow model of "Normality"and exploring what exactly this term has to do with placing and boxing people into nice little compartments so that new ways of seeing things are taken as interesting and not admonished as frightening and needing to be pushed away or sedated.
I hope that if anyone wants to ask any questions of me they feel free to do so.
I live in Western New York in a small town about 40 minutes fron Canada with my lovely wife Melissa.
