About

Rows of African American people are shown in what represents a train, coach, or bus. These individuals are enduring the long, arduous journey that the Great Migration entailed. Lawrence creates a staccato-like rhythm over and over again through the figures as they alternate from row to row, building on the geometry of them. There is an overall sense of humanity and normality portrayed through these figures. Several are sleeping, while others are shown with eyes wide open, perhaps eager or anxious towards the journey ahead of them. A mother is shown hunched over, breastfeeding her infant. An suitcase is placed in the middle of the aisle, opened up presumably for its owner to select an item or go through its contents. These are all regular tasks that are tended to while traveling for an extended period of time. While creating a sense of normalcy, Lawrence additionally creates an overall mysterious tone – where are these people going? What will the next step in their journey be? Overall, through the manipulation of color, shape, value, and texture within these figures, Lawrence creates a sense of continuity: a factor he maintains throughout The Migration Series.

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.
