Wildlife that emerges from the plush motifs woven into rugs. Debbie Lawson’s Kent studio are camouflaged by domesticity. The artist (Earlier) is known for her sculptures cloaked in ornate carpets, the latest of which are on view now at Sargents DaughtersHer solo exhibition Hidden Territories.

Under the luxurious floor coverings, elaborate Persian patterns hide life-sized stags and lions. The animals, though distinct in their form, lose some of their naturalistic qualities. Lawson chose to use a rectangular rug as a covering for each animal, rather than covering it in fabric. This allows him to blur the line between human-made decoration, and the natural world.

Hidden Territories Continues in New York City until March 9. Peek into Lawson’s studio and view more of her work on Her websiteThe following are some examples of how to get started: Instagram.
