Equal parts artist, collector and tinker, Micah methodically reimagines found objects with care and attention to give them new meaning. He works in deliberate contrast to high-tech modes, preferring the intimacy of developing a repertoire of manual techniques. Lisual recollections of the places he seeks to recreate.
Micah’s practice engages a playful balance between humour and formal issues, longevity versus ephemerality, perception of scale, and how these relationships inform one’s concept of value. Through his study of evolving process-based working methods, Lawrence is interested in producing wearable sculptures that are de facto studies of rough terrain.
