UK-based Lawrence Calver (b.1992) centers the experience of searching at the heart of his practice. Whether taking a leisurely walk down Portobello Road or intentionally hunting for material, he remains open to the possibility that inspiration may strike in any form. Drawing on his educational background in fashion direction, Calver views himself as ‘directing’ the composition of his artwork, and allowing the material to inform his work with accidental gestures. Often using recycled linen, wool and cotton, Calver is careful to allow his fabric’s previous life to show through with its textural nuances and history. Motion exemplifies how he assembles his artworks with the use of bleach, natural clay-dye, and stitching.
