Gracelee Lawrence

Gracelee Lawrence (*1989) Her work deals with relationships between food, the body, and technology. It is born in the transfigurative space between physical and digital reality, exploring the ways in which bodies are both gendered and metaphorically fragmented in terms of capitalist-driven material desires, physical sustenance, and the digital spaces we inhabit.

Gracelee Lawrence recently completed her first European solo-exhibition at GALERIE Peter Gaugy in Vienna and had her second solo show at Postmasters in June 2022. She is currently an Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Albany, SUNY. Recent exhibitions include Marinaro Gallery (New York, NY), Postmasters Gallery (New York, NY), Atlanta Contemporary (Atlanta, GA), Kavi Gupta Gallery (Chicago, IL), HEADLINE Gallery (Vancouver, Canada), and more.

Collected Trot: Gracelee Lawrence – December 15, 2022 – January 28, 2023

Exhibiting for the first time in Europe, New York-based artist Gracelee Lawrence presented a series of her pioneering 3D-printed sculptures. NY Times critic Roberta Smith recently wrote that “Lawrence ingenuously exploits her small 3-D printers and described her work as “mouthwatering”, “gorgeous” and “covetable.” Working from scans of her own body and various plant and fruit forms, these digital files render the organic into works of startling originality.
