BONNIE JEANNE LAWLESS
I am interested in creating psychological portraits that tell a story about an individual or address relationships of identity, both of oneself and others. I always add personal aspects of my own life, as I believe the more intimate the work the more universal. Visually, I use aspects of kitch and humor as well as use a bold and varied color palette. I work in several mediums including painting, photography, printmaking and video
INVOKE STREET ART
As part of the Invoke Street Art Initiative, two pieces entitled “Masquerade” and “Luv-Aid” will be on display on traffic-light control boxes at two locations in Temple Bar, Dublin. Invoke Street Art is an exciting new public art project, increasing the use and enjoyment of public space. The project will turn traffic signal boxes in five locations in Dublin, which in many cases may be vandalized with graffiti, into a platform for original, imaginative artwork. The boxes are located in Parliament Street, Fishamble Street, Essex Street, Eustace Street and O’Connell Bridge. Public art projects utilizing these traffic signal box are already in operation worldwide in places such as St Benedicts Florida, Santa Cruz L.A, Staten Island New York and Halifax Canada.
