Preview: Ted Lawson’s “Crude” at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery

Tonight, May 23, Ted Lawson will open a new solo show titled "Crude" at Emmanuel Fremin Gallery in New York. Rather than interpreting the word "crude" as it is used it common speak to declare something tactless or offensive, Lawson refers to the word's other meaning: a raw or unrefined state. Lawson's new sculptures explore the idea of the cycle of life, tapping into the mythological link between death and eroticism as it pertains to regeneration and creation. Take a look at some of the works in the show below, images courtesy of Emmanuel Fremin Gallery, and see "Crude" May 23 through June 23.
