The Positioning #1,

Taking the influence of spatial and architectural relationships on the individual within the private realm of the home as a starting point, Alanna Lawley mediates the experience of the temporary, representational environments that she constructs. By isolating space, Lawley investigates how deliberately fragmented spaces can generate experiences of disassociation, anxiety and isolation that deny the viewer the freedom ever to fully orientate themselves in a specific time or place.
Lawley graduated with a BA in painting from Chelsea College of Art and Design, London in 2005. Since then she has exhibited internationally including the UK, Germany and the US.
