About Lawence

I am Lawrence D'Attilio

ART MAKING

I am honored that you are visiting my website. My art profession has spanned more then forty years and has filled me with sincerely felt experiences, while also introducing me to many people across the world.

Ideas and meanings are at the roots of my artwork and since my encounters are varied, my portfolios are too. In these artworks I search my convoluted soul for it's ability to dream of art while engaging in it's constant critique of my thoughts. Full abstraction, perspective, painterly colors, and compelling focal points are some of the major aesthetic tools I use to turn the soul's passions into art. In this century I also make abstracts consisting of multiple photographs formed into a collage. 

Teaching: For most of my career I have taught fine art photography ad hoc at universities, art centers, and lately in online one on one sessions.

I have had many art exhibits in museums and  galleries, an often exciting and yet humbling time.  Also I am grateful that my 57 months spent in Asia, as a working artist, has been supported by patrons, corporations, the Ford Foundation, and others. 


My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my artworks. 



Inspiration

Training: My father, Anthony, a career artist, was the first influence on my art. After getting a degree in fine arts, I studied with landscape artist, Ansel Adams, then photo journalist, W, Eugene Smith. See their effects on my work by observing how I use contrast and compelling focal points.

The longest and most effective inspirations have come form my wife, musician and writer, Pamela Foard

Others: As also a professional classical musician have been affected in my art through counterpoint and other music to art concepts. Also as an experienced pilot have employed that experience on my abstract landscape scenes.

Self awareness training form Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra and from watching my four sons go on to  achievements of their own


Techniques

Originally black and white large format film turned into very large prints processed on massive rotating chemistry machine using oil drums which I invented and built.

Switched to medium format and Fuji based color film in 1974 then began making portraits for the first time.

Switched to digital darkroom in 1997 then began first attempts at non-abstract collage.

Using computer printing went back to creating very large prints as murals for commissions. Added 44 inch wide format printer to the studio.

Explored use of metal, bamboo, transparent reversed photo prints, experimental music and wind energy to create room sized installation artwork 2006

2008 left use of medium format behind and started using DSLR.

2009 - began abstract collage and paper making
