Glimmering and seductive surfaces blend into sensual volumes in space that together form the plastic sublime that is Gracelee Lawrence’s sculpture. Her approach to objects spins somewhere off the map between a traditional sculptural legacy (in the company of reclining nudes and ornate garden fountains) and a 21st-century DIY manufacturing approach that lets one artist print off extruded plastic components that fit elegantly together. Still, with a fierce rebel sensibility, Lawrence serves the most exquisite Lego Tetris figuration you’ve ever seen. These sculptures usually feel like femme beings that are at once naked and armored up. Here you may find the works conjuring a rogue cyborg disco, cumquat army, digital cherry mountain with the reclining gargoyle, oil spill harvest cake on hard candy tectonics.
