Lamb, Claire

Claire Lamb is an interdisciplinary artist based in Edmonton / Amiskwaciwâskahikan, Alberta.

Claire Lamb’s practice centres around themes of nostalgia and memory and the unique materials used in these practices of recollection. She often employs objects, memorabilia and architectural themes in an absurd manner to communicate these themes through her paintings.

Her ventures in installation focus more on architectural and textile elements, taking them into similarly absurd landscapes that explore her family history. Ultimately, both her paintings and installations are equally devoted to the exploration of the medium as much as the subject matter.

Bugera Matheson Gallery is proud to introduce the art of Claire Lamb.  Claire’s work is skillful with depth and gravity rare in such a young talent.  I am sure this is in part due to the  mentorship of her father, artist Paddy Lamb.
