  6. 6. Lawrence on his art I dont think in terms of history about that series. I think in terms of contemporary life. It was such a part of me that I didnt think of something outside. It was like I was doing a portrait of something. If it was a portrait, it was a portrait of myself, a portrait of my family, a portrait of my peers.
