This painting is from a new series of works by Jesse Lambert which ink and depict ad-hoc structures that are constructed out of scraps of wood and debris such as bent nails, string, cloth, clothespins, discarded tools and other household implements. Evoking the universal human desire for shelter and protection, these assemblages reference domestic spaces, but fail to function as those spaces normally would. Paintings of these subject matter show the accumulated effects of time on objects and our environment. Jesse Lambert was born in Hudson, NY and grew up in rural New Hampshire and New York City. Jesse received a BFA from Cooper Union and a MFA in Painting from Hunter College. Jesse has exhibited his work at The Front Room Gallery, Brooklyn; White Columns, NYC; Klaus Von Nichtssagend Gallery, NYC; Ningyo Editions, Watertown, MA; Matter Gallery in Portland, ME; Miller Block Gallery, Boston, MA; Joseloff Gallery, Hartford, CT among other venues. His work has been exhibited at NOVA and Bridge art fairs in Chicago and Aqua art fair in Miami. He has attended residencies at Skowhegan, the Vermont Studio School in Johnson, Vermont and the Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art in Yerevan, Armenia. Jesse's exhibitions have been reviewed on Hyperallergic, artnet, in the The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Brooklyn Rail, The Yale Daily News and The Aravot Daily, Yerevan, Armenia, and featured in New American Paintings, amongst other publications. He currently lives in Jackson Heights, NY and works in Long Island City, NY.
