Attempting to provide a glimmer of societal self-reflection for the viewer, Maggie Lawless uses text and imagery from the Internet to attempt to capture the structures that promote and maintain entrapment, or domination and dependence, in modern society. Using formal techniques of collage, drawing, and painting, Lawless incorporates art historical references with details that intimately engage the viewer, while the symbolism and artistic techniques attract attention from a distance. Social, economic injustice and the structures that maintain these conditions are themes that occur throughout the work.
