Information

Lawrence Daws (b. 1927, Adelaide) is a major figure of modern and contemporary Australian art. He has sustained a successful career as a painter and printmaker for over a half a century. Daws’ depictions of the Australian landscape are as unique as the psychological landscapes he often grafts within them. His works are a personal journey of self-awareness and discovery, and often about the formal qualities of paint itself – "Even when a painting is full of menace, I try to paint it in a beautiful way so you're seduced by the paint quality and you don't get subsumed by the horror."
