Statement

 Drawing inspiration from his artistically rich Pennsylvania Dutch roots, Lawrence von Knorr, creates brightly colored, beautiful visions of the world with a decidedly modern twist.  Where his predecessors excelled in the folk arts, primarily furniture and hex painting, von Knorr uses the camera and digital imaging techniques to produce a painterly form of photography that transforms his mostly architectural subjects with radiant hues.  By choosing empty spaces in faraway places, von Knorr takes viewers on a visual and mental journey, allowing them to escape into his pictures and for a moment imagine a world outside their own.  Many of his bold architectural works recall German Expressionism for their strong use of emotive color. Von Knorr describes many of his landscape works as "Photo-Impressionism".  By borrowing from the artistic traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch, the German Expressionists, and the French Impressionists, von Knorr conjures up scenes full of evocative color and visual interest.

A native of Pennsylvania, Lawrence von Knorr lives and works near Harrisburg.
