TINNED FISH (article first published : 2006-12-15)

Running at Kizo Gallery at Gateway is an exhibition titled Tinned Fish by Paul Lawrenson who presents a body of work that includes more than 40 handcrafted sculptures.

Having taught himself, Paul uses the age-old blacksmith tradition of handcrafting metal that is forged and then beaten into shape. Each piece is created as a “one-off” and can never be reproduced. It has taken him over a year to create his current exhibition which reflect his interest in wildlife and focuses particularly on marine life.

The works of Paul Lawrenson are liable to attract increased international demand as he recently completed a commission of 20 murals for Oprah Winfrey for her school in Johannesburg. Paul was filmed working in his studio and this footage will be flighted on Oprah's show in 2007.

The increased exposure and publicity will affect the price of his pieces so arts lovers are encouraged to take this opportunity of purchasing one of his works at a comparatively affordable price.
