Lawrence Oliverson uses straight photographs of existing subjects to decipher or interpret a scene rather than document it. He often isolates details or small sections of a subject to create semi abstract compositions. His objective is to create images that transcend the original subject and stimulate an emotional or intellectual response in the viewer. Oliverson has exhibited internationally and has worked closely with artists from Cuba, China, and Japan. His work is included in numerous private and corporate collections around the world. He has served as both judge and juror and has been an advisor and consultant to many art events.
