TODD LAMBETH Oh! You Pretty Things
DELUGE, Opening reception May 17 at 7 pm
VISA instructor, Todd Lambeth showcases new work at Deluge Contemporary Art.
What interests me most is the cat's status in the home. This series of 15 paintings -- culled from photographs collected after a request for pictures on Facebook -- focuses on house cats in domestic interiors. These small scale, representational works are meditations of space, time, colour and form and are a deliberate attempt at destabilizing the icons of modernism. Repeatedly deploying arrangements of fabric, furniture and architecture, this series is ultimately concerned with modes of inhabiting space and suggests a compressed urban environment. These are not paintings of urban hustle; rather they are oases of meditative calm and reflection. The banal subject of the ubiquitous family cat is transformed into images that celebrate the humility and comfort of our private lives. Todd Lambeth, 2013
Exhibition continues to June 15, 2013
Deluge is at 636 Yates Street
