The paintings of Canada-based artist Elesavet Lawson take you away to a world unknown, where humans and emotions are explored in beautiful portraits. Her works are painted in a simplistic style, filled with colours, details and surrealistic aspects. I love how the people she portrays differ, yet carry the same characteristics in their faces. Whether happy or sad, their eyes express a kind of certainty (and perhaps even a bit of anger) that makes it very clear that they belong to the world they’re portrayed in. Wherever that may be..
Elesevet Lawson is currently exhibiting new works in a solo show called Colony and Beauty’s at the Nathaniel Hughson Gallery in Hamilton, Ontario.
