Trisha Lambi continues to explore light and form in her latest body of work on display at Maria Perides Gallery and the result is a heightened emotional depth to her figurative work coupled with greater technical proficiency. Lambi has added landscape and seascape painting to her repertoire, which she says provide a carefree respite from her intense devotion to the figurative pieces. The common denominator in the work on display is simplicity in both composition and palette coupled with dramatic lighting.
“Light and its effect on form is my inspiration and whilst I don’t particularly aspire to convey a conscious emotion in my work it seems to emerge of its own will,” says Lambi.
Lambi was invited to participate in, and represent Australia at, the fourth edition of the Biennale Internationale dell’Arte Contemporanea held in Florence Italy in December 2003. Since then she has held her first solo show in October 2004 at SODA Gallery in Avalon, Sydney which was the subject of an excellent review from Lenny Ann Low of the Sydney Morning Herald as well as exhibiting in a number of galleries in Germany in 2005. She has also been featured in group shows around Queensland including the 2005 Churchie Emerging Art Exhibition and the 2005 Flying Arts Regional Art Award and has recently been preselected for the Cromwell's Art Award based in Sydney.
Lambi’s work is held in private collections in Australia, Canada, Cyprus, Ireland and the USA. Her art continues to generate interest both here and internationally with invitations received to exhibit in Europ’ART 2006 in Geneva and in a new gallery being established by renowned New York author and Photographer, Davis Stravitz.

The show at Maria Perides Gallery is a joint exhibition with Max Lieberman. Max is an artist from Sydney and has been a four time finalist for the prestigious Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. He has been exhibiting regularly in Sydney and Brisbane for a number of years. As Cathy Peake from the Sydney Morning Herald puts it “Lieberman selects his subjects for their visual qualities, their simplicity of shape, their colour and their symbolic nature. He is interested in the drama and tension created between objects by their arrangement in a painting and often paints fewer objects than is conventional in the long and venerable still life tradition.”
Trisha Lambi has been a Premiere Portfolio Member at absolutearts.com since 2001 - one of the original artists on the site. View more of her works at www.absolutearts.com/portfolios/t/tlambi.
