Lawrence Buttigieg
Exhibition of recent paintings by Lawrence
Architect and artist Lawrence Buttigieg (born 1963) is presenting a collection of about twenty paintings at the Auberge d'Italie, Valletta, between the 16th June and the 20th July. With this corpus of paintings Buttigieg continues to explore the contemporary female body which is set against the changeable roles of men and women in present day society. In these works the artist addresses the question of what it means to be a sexual human being. As a consequence, his nudes tend to be highly charged images. Through Buttigieg's painting process, the raw and informal body undergoes a transformation that is influenced by the sexual orientation of both artist and subject. These nudes are a celebration of the beauty and sensuality of modern women. In his work Buttigieg relies on close observation of the subject and the expressive use of colour. He insists that a good representation of a person, whether it is a portrait or a nude, is a search for quintessential truths; and so it is crucial that the artist focuses on the heart, mind, passion, and temperament of the individual-qualities which constitute the essence of his or her character.
