MIAMI BEACH, Fla.
- Jan. 31, 2020
-- Sculptor Lenore Rae Lampi has been associated with her biomorphic birch bark series for years but has recently moved seamlessly into a new arena of cultural commentary and pop-art influenced objects. In her latest Big Bling Series, Lenore has embraced the forms of ribbons and bows, essentially birch bark of another kind, the outermost layer of cultural icons and nostalgic tendencies.
Collectors and art aficionados will experience Lampi's work at the 23rd Edition of Art Palm Beach with Steidel Contemporary Booth 422, the fair runs January 30 - February 3, 2020 at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. Art Palm Beach is the premier art fair in South Florida during the height of the Winter Season. Lampi's signature work uses clay as a starting point to explore lush folds, twisting shapes, and the forces of physics in natural forms and textiles.
The possibilities of form and movement lend a fluidity to her sculptural ceramic artwork. Lampi's work is appealing not only because the designs are eloquent, but also because the subject matter reflects poignant memories as well as notions of strength, endurance, and subtlety. Her Big Bling series examines adornments such as ribbons, bows, and streamers, monumentalizing these humble objects while evoking feelings of nostalgia.
Always fascinated with the undulating forms in Classical drapery since the days of observing her mother's workings as a seamstress, Lenore now captures this movement and narrative with a Pop Art sensibility. Her new series explores the notion of adornment of the affordable kind. Ribbons, bows, and streamers in an historical context may evoke feelings of nostalgia, kitsch, and pomp.
