Emily Noelle Lambert’s work explores dimensionality and space within the painting field. With her intuitive explorations of the human body, her work is characterized by its embrace of both figuration and abstraction. Lambert’s work engages with many of the concerns of Cubism and Impressionism, but also has its own unique contemporary language and vibrant expression of color. Lambert is an interdisciplinary artist whose sculptural work informs her painting and expands its materiality into appropriated materials such as found wood.
Lambert’s most recent body of work exhibited in Bellow developed during a residency in the Brittany region of France. Her time there was defined by engagement with landscape, French gardens, and medieval architecture and materials. Secret codes and images embedded within the paintings, as well as architectural forms, evoke old world narratives and mythologies. Bellow, the title of the exhibition, is a reference to the multi-sensory, interdisciplinary aspect of the work as well as an expression of frustration with our current political moment.
