Cass Fine Art: Lecture by Michael Lawton

'Painting as Quadruple Object' - a lunchbox lecture by the artist Michael Lawton

Michael Lawton is an artist and writer - born in Sheffield in 1980, he now lives and works in London. He studied Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University and Chelsea College of Art & Design and started a practice-based PhD at the University of Kent in September 2015. His paintings are currently all the same size and he had a novel The Athlete published for Kindle in 2013.

Michael is researching to shed light on the inspirations and processes behind his own painting practice and to see if it is possible to take an "object-orientated" approach (via Graham Harman and Levi Bryant) to the clash of the literary and the painterly; if so, can it perhaps inspire a new approach to writing about painting.
