Jim Lambie RSA (Elect)
Jim Lambie’s practice evolves from a response to the psychology of space and colour and is influenced by movements in art and the history of place.
Sourcing his material directly from the modern world, Lambie references popular culture, often drawing his subject matter from music and iconic figures. He makes use of everyday objects and materials – both as reference points and as original objects, transforming them into new sculptural forms, re-energising them and giving them with an alternative function. Encapsulating ideologies in art history, and arbitrated by cultural deities, Lambie allows himself to work liberally and outside the constraints of a single medium or dimension.
