A documentation of Lawrence Fodor's installation of 81 watercolor on paper paintings in conjunction with a large oil on canvas painting including an intelligent essay by Cyndi Conn that both describes the work and places it in a relevant contemporary art historical context. Art photography by Addison Doty and studio photography by Joshua Bergeron.
Lawrence Fodor was born in 1951 in Los Angeles and started painting at an early age. He studied painting, printmaking and art history at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California, received a BFA in printmaking and completed graduate work in painting at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. He travels the world extensively and currently lives/works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. In addition to his continuing successful career as a painter (his "...best means of communication."), Fodor has collaborated with artists as a master printmaker at two experimental print workshops he founded, curates visual art exhibitions, plays with photography and loves making/designing books. His painting falls in the realm of nature based abstraction and includes oil, wax and alkyd resin on canvas, paper and wood cigar boxes and watercolor. His work is collected and has been exhibited by the Lannan Foundation, New Mexico Museum of Art and Laguna Art Museum and is in numerous private and corporate collections.
