What is interesting about looking at Lawler's photographs is that is makes you wonder how is the medium, photography, being credited? Since she takes photos of other artists' works, how does that make a difference when it comes to the acceptance of original art?
What I figured is that artworks are not found objects, but they could be found objects. As long as they are created, presented and displayed by individuals who have intentions and beliefs regarding the objects themselves and the process by which they were made. As long as there is meaning and connection in the world of the object rather than itself, it is and should be recognized as art work.
