History of Salt . . .  
seapictures viet   salt  
Think of salt, and if you are romantically inclined you’ll imagine the crusty remains of a swim in the ocean on a hot summer’s day. For Christopher Lawrie, the mineral forms the basis of his installation pieces both as sculptural tools and as metaphores for history. Using objects which have a unique story, from centenary celebration maps used to line a kitchen floor to music certificates found in a second hand store. The artist salts the paper creating beautiful, textured sculptural pieces. By literally giving history solidity the works confront the viewer with their own role in its continuous evolvement.
