Emily Noelle Lambert: Less Like A March, More Like a Polka

October 4 – November 3 2023

Works by American artist Emily Noelle Lambert, who creates abstract paintings, totemic sculptures and installations that echo an evocative interrelation between color and form. Inspired by automatic drawings and plein air painting, Lambert’s gestural compositions reflect different aspects of her surroundings. Robust with geometric and biomorphic flat planes of color, each canvas expresses a unique portrayal of nature.
