Molly Lawton has used mixed white paint including matte white spray paint, white primer, white acrylic, white chalk emulsion and white oil-based watercolour, in her work, WHITE.
In the painting there are various marks of black that have been left exposed as they create this sense of nurtured line in natural direction. The amount of texture the layers of different paints created have a rough, edged, frictional response to the canvas from when primed. Layers of mix white paints are creating a sense of foreign shading between each layer of mix media. Upon close inspection of the painting more textures and various tones become exposed, developing the viewers sense of dimension and textural surface. Certain areas of the painting are almost degraded and significantly justified as three-dimensional: although being an originally flat surface, this exploration creates a new variety of dimensions within media, surface and texture.
In her recent projects, mixed media and 3D sculpture artist Molly Lawton incorporates basic sculpting materials, such as plaster and aluminium wire, alongside found materials. When working on a 2D platform Lawton uses mix media utensils, ranging in a variety of forms including ink, acrylic and a various number of graphite pencils, chalk, charcoal and graphite. Adapting two-dimensional artwork into prints, including etchings, monoprint, screen print and lino, in exploration of mark making techniques and visuals.
