With smoke, fire and the most primitive imagery - the ancient cave wall echoes the hopes and dreams of mankind. From its earliest evolution, mankind has expressed itself in painting and carving stories, fantasies, and hope for those who follow.
I (Brent Lawrence), too, leave a legacy with the development of a method by which stone-like textures and wildlife images merge on stainless steel. Along with capturing the ancient feel and emotion of the shamanistic images, I (Brent Lawrence) use various chemicals, techniques, and equipment to recreate the fragile cave wall in the most extreme outdoor environments.
While creating these pieces I (Brent Lawrence) often reflect upon the cave dwellers of 30,000 years ago and try to capture the urgency of the images, the spiritual fascination, and the majesty of the wildlife that is depicted in my work.
