Lawrence Calver Biography

Suffolk, UK, 1992

Read More

Lawrence Calver centers the experience of searching at the heart of his practice. Whether he is 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. With 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. Using processes including embroidery, stitching and sewing, as well as bleaching, dying and staining, he draws out striking, sensitive conjunctions of texture and tactility.

Lawrence Calver lives and works in London. He studied creative direction of fashion at London College of Fashion and has completed residencies at Cape Town Art Residency (2022), Banditto Residency (2022), Simchowitz (2021), PADA (2019) and The Muse Gallery (2017). Recent exhibitions were held at Simchowitz, Los Angeles (2022); Cob Gallery, London (2022) and De Brock, Knokke (2022).
