'I gave each spot a meaning, and as I populated it with the things I have been given to remember, the cell began to grow'.
Frank Laws created a series of intricate paintings that form an installation of the prisoner's cell. The scenes depicted inside the cell are the Prisioner's memories of London buildings. The narrow viewing points evoke the claustrophobia induced by spending day in day out in a confined space.
Laws is an illlustrator with a fascination with mundane details of everyday life. He works in watercolour paints, drawing ink and acrylic on stretched paper, applying layer upon layer to obtain richness and depth. Laws now lives between London and Paris, where he works as a in-house artist for Louis Vuitton.
