We guarntee that this blood robot selfie will top every other one on your feed today. Watch as artist Ted Lawson creates a life-sized self-portrait drawing, in his own blood, using a robot. With a life streaming IV attatched to his arm, Lawson stands by as the robotic rendering happens. Not for the blood-phobic.
Using figurative representation and geometric abstraction, Ted Lawson creates a narrative progression of forms that reveals something conceptually greater than the sum of their parts. Ted’s large scale works combine digital technology with highly crafted traditional sculpting methods to seamlessly produce conceptual objects that express the underlying analog truth within his subject matter. His working process in an exploration into the human existential experience through imagined models of the universe as physical form. He has been living and working in New York City creating original works from his studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
