Los Angeles based painter Chyrum Lambert, has several strings to his artistic bow. He has perfect the art of collage and handles scalpel blades like a surgeon to carve his paintings, which are based on gridded backdrops. Sometimes enhanced by fabric strips, his semi-abstract scenes are endowed by organic shapes like cracked gems of boulders, surrealist sunsets and broken cliffs. A huge source of textures, patterns and prints!
How do I affect the material I’m using – whether it’s wax or dye, or a textile, or sandpaper – to draw out its unique characteristics and achieve a heightened sense of color or combination of colors? I’m drawn to dynamic, high-contrast jumps in color.
