"Trisha Lambi: Lighting the Body"
2004-10-20 until 2004-11-07
SODA Gallery
Avalon, NS, USA United States of America

It’s only months since Trisha Lambi stepped onto a long haul flight to Italy where she was met with critical acclaim at the Fourth Edition of the Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte Contemporanea. Audiences are set to be dazzled when her solo exhibition opens at SODA Gallery, Avalon on Wednesday 20 October 2004, entitled Lighting the Body. The oil on canvas works are hauntingly photo-realist and yet through her powerful use of light the images have a uniquely complex impact on the viewer. The subject matter of the work seems unimportant to the artist and Lambi says of it “I don’t see the objects. I see light on forms highlighting sensual curves, hard edges and soft shadows”.

SODA Gallery Director and Curator says “the sharpness, technical proficiency and the intense light cast on the subject of the image truly captivates me in Trisha’s new work. The headless subjects create a mystery within the canvas – leaving interpretation firmly within the eyes and minds of audiences”.

Lambi was invited to participate in and represent Australia at the Fourth Edition of the Biennale Internazionale dell’Arte Contemporanea held in Florence, Italy in December 2003. The Scientific Committee (responsible for nominating and selecting participating artists) includes Anthony Bond, General Manager – Curatorial Services and Head Curator International Art at the Art Gallery of NSW. Tony Bond is also arguably one of Australia’s finest contemporary art curators and as such, Lambi’s invitation to participate became all the more important.

After completing her secondary education, Lambi began a Bachelor of Visual Arts however the lure of money and independence proved too strong and she interrupted studies to join the workforce. Since then she has consistently been pulled back to her painting which she now practices full time.

The Judith Wright Centre for Contemporary Art in Brisbane was home to a solo exhibition of Lambi’s work earlier this year and the Brisbane artist has exhibited in a number of group shows in Queensland over the past few years.

Lambi’s work is held in private collections in Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Ireland and the USA. An artist to look out for in the future as her works continue to sell at a pace and each series brings with it a fresh and interesting perspective on contemporary painting in the figurative/subjective genre.

Trisha Lambi has been a Premiere Portfolio artist at absolutearts.com since July 2001. View more of her works atwww.absolutearts.com/portfolios/t/tlambi
