Gallery247 Presents: Forrest Lawson says
"Closeted is intended to be a brief exploration into the array of complexities experienced by the gay community. This series is both a tribute and a memoir, touching on feelings that resonate personally and universally. Ranging from a youthful, and often cyclical, self-hatred towards a resentment against church, family, and country; this group of works is merely a glimpse into the often unknown condition of growing up gay."

“Lawson’s approach to making work is like a quiet, confident knife cutting with deft clarity and certainty of intention. Using crisp order, poingant materials and clearly defined demarcations, his powerful and emotionally driven works nimbly move between cutting to the core of, or gently & often sardonically, skinning the surface of painful narratives experienced both personally and as a part of the universal human condition. ”
