About

This painting reveals Lawrence’s play with composition, as he depicts a couple in their bed, with the bars of the bedstead doubling as bars of a prison cell. The title of the piece suggests they are dreaming, but their writhing bodies and the ghoulish figures dancing at the top of the bed suggest, perhaps, that this is a nightmare. Lawrence here couples color and composition: the bright yellow bars intersect the space, creating a divide amongst the various figures. The general tone of the piece is of a macabre nature: ‘Although the man and woman do not embrace, color and form lock them together, trapping them in a nightmare from which there is no escape’

We Offer High Quality

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
