The work of Lawler possesses the beauty and power of the authentic.
"Cinco Dias", Madrid1980
I’m pleased to present a painter, whose worth is apparent, and who has made figurative expression actual, and authentic.
Francesc Gali, Barcelona1978
The American painter, Lawler exhibits an expressionism that is powerful and all encompassing.
Lina Font, Radio Barcelona1978
I.D. Lawler is a painter with roots firmly established in the most violent expressionism ofSpanish art. His oils are distant siblings of Goya and Solano. They have the force of questioning our placidity.
Mario Antolin, "El Imparcial", Madrid1980
The drawings of Lawler are full of pathos, without becoming caricatures. In our opinion this is the most difficult and risky of styles. His message is clear while being obscure, something he achieves magically.
The ongoing theme of my work is “connections”, from beasts and their shadows to nature and it’s passionate beauty. In my detailed depictions, I strive to capture the pulse of people, animals and ideas at a moment in time.
